Lunacy Brewing Company Haddon Heights, NJ to Close for Good
Weeks after EHT's Tuckahoe Brewing Company announced it was closing for good this fall, another South Jersey brewery, Lunacy, is hanging up its hops.
This one is personal. This one breaks my heart. Aw, man, how I love Lunacy Brewing Company.
Ever since they were a little 'off the beaten path' part of Magnolia, in an industrial park between White Horse Pike and East Atlantic Avenue, I'd hang out in what felt like a friend's garage bar.
The beer was always impressive, the brewers and bartenders fun and friendly, and a vinyl record player always spinning tunes.
In 2020, Lunacy expanded its enterprise, moving from that small industrial park lot to a larger, swankier space off Kings Highway in Haddon Heights.
It seemed like a natural progression. However, I'm so sad to report that after in just a matter of weeks, Lunacy Brewing Company will be no more.
All good things must come to an end, I suppose. On Facebook, the Lunacy team writes, 'After 8+ years, we have decided to close our doors. It wasn’t an easy decision, but we feel it’s the best for us.'
It seems the expansion never panned out quite like Lunacy had hoped. 'We ran into many hiccups that prevented us from expanding the production side of the business. Along with those obstacles were the pandemic, brewery restrictions and other problems that led to our decision to close our doors', the brewery's statement goes on to say.
You've got a couple more weeks to support the brewery and the staff before Lunacy closes for good after Saturday, September 16th.

Recently, two of Pitman's popular breweries, Human Village and Kelly Green also went out of business.
To Lunacy I say, 'Thanks for the memories!'
