The grand opening of the Crooked Ewe Brewery and Ale House will be pushed back because of electrical problems, said co-owner and brewer Andy Walton.
The South Bend brewery will announce new dates for the grand opening on the Crooked Ewe Facebook page, he said.
The grand opening was originally going to be held Friday, June 5, and Saturday, June 6, as reported earlier today on Flavor 574’s craft beer blog, Hop Notes.
The problems began when the power transformer started acting up during one of the Crooked Ewe’s soft opening events last night with family and friends. The power to the kitchen went out three times, Walton said.
The power transformer has been fixed since then, but the staff want to make sure everything’s working properly before opening doors to the public for the grand opening.
“The problems are mostly behind us,” Walton said. “That’s what we’re doing with the soft openings — to test everything out and (make sure) everything’s how it’s supposed to be — and then we’ll go public.”
The Crooked Ewe Brewery and Ale House is located at 1047 Lincoln Way E. in South Bend.
