Cherry Hill, NJ, Brewery Forgotten Boardwalk to Close its Doors After 10 Years in Business
Another South Jersey brewery is closing its doors.
Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing in Cherry Hill is shutting down in part because they can not secure a new lease for its location at 1940 Olney Ave #100 in Cherry Hill.
They will stay open through the month of February, before closing its doors. During that time, you will still be able to visit the tasting room, as they will be maintaining their regular business hours and serving in their tasting room until February 29th.
The brewery's own Jamie Queli made the announcement in a social media post:
To all of our loyal customers, friends, family and supporters - we wish you a heartfelt thank you for being a part of the Forgotten Boardwalk Story for the past 10 years.
We have vigorously tried to sign a lease extension with our landlord to no avail as our next door neighbor has leased out the space from underneath us. We are extremely disappointed and quite frankly, appalled at the actions of both companies and their adamant refusals to negotiate with us.
The post did indicate that they might continue, possibly in another form in the future and that they will have party announcements and barrel releases before they close.
In addition to many liquor stores in the area, Forgotten Boardwalk was available at a few bars in our area, like Tennessee Ave Beer Hall and Wingcraft.
The closing marks the second brewery to close since the calendar flipped to 2024, with Flying Fish announcing they were closing, filing for bankruptcy.
