    I don't see any option to upload a screenshot, but they posted the following on facebook:

    "We're closing temporary due to production issues. Sorry for the inconvenience."

    A few hours prior to that, they posted, "Looking for a new brewer. Anyone interested?"

    Now today we have:

    "We'll be opening at 5pm today."

    Only to be followed by this 10 minutes later:

    "We will be closed permanently in Middlesex, NJ."

    Well, they're living to their name, I guess.

    Never had a beer of theirs that i enjoyed, also never heard s good comment about the taproom and the mug club, both all negative comments.

    I am not a brewer or brewery owner; but common sense would imply to get your thoughts together and have a plan; the image that the owner has put for his business recently is Embarrassing, how much brand relevance & equity does Demented have

    Personal issues wise, i hope he is ok, might be time to walk away

    Never a huge fan of Demented but it was the closest brewery to me so I’ve been there a number of times to sample some stuff. Honestly I liked some things (other things, eh) but wow never expected the post we all just read. Feel bad for the owner and the staff because if taken at face value that bar owner is a douche bag. That’s way beyond looking out for your own livelihood. But at any rate sounds like Demented was heading down the tubes at some point regardless. Hope the guy gets help.

    That reddit thread got deleted, would you mind giving a quick summary of what the deal is?

    EDIT: well, not deleted completely but the OP deleted his post for some reason

    I guess maybe the guy felt he overstepped by posting. Basically the post said the brewery had problems from the start, including a nearby bar owner constantly undermining them and who was part of that move to stop breweries from having events, etc. On top of that he said the owner of Demented has been having personal issues, including mental health problems. That would explain the erratic social media posts recently. Anyway, that’s a summary of what was posted. Don’t know how true it is.

    There was apparently also a post (partial below) from the accused bar.
