A Quick Update on the Fire at Funk Brewing Company

Funk Brewing Company posted a quick update on their Facebook page just a bit ago, stating:

Hey, Funk Etown family,

You may have heard, but there was a fire in the back stairwell of the building. Fortunately, no one was injured.

We absolutely love serving this community, and we are doing everything we can to reopen the taproom.

Stay tuned to this channel for updates.

This is in response to the fire that was reported earlier this morning. For those who don’t know or didn’t see that article, you can find it here:

(Be sure to go and read that article then come back to this one.)

Thankfully No Injuries

Thankfully there was no injuries for anyone involved with the fire that happened at 3AM this morning (10.27.22). However some damage has been caused to the building. This will result in a few change of plans for Funk Brewing Company in Elizabethtown going forward. They were originally scheduled to have their Halloween party this Saturday.

Still Slinging Suds

Funk Brewing Company has just posted that they have altered their plans but that they will be still slinging suds this weekend. Both Friday and Saturday (tomorrow – Friday the 28th and then on Saturday the 29th) they will be hosting parties in their parking lot back behind the brewery, as well as selling beers.


The original Halloween party plans were:

Join us this Saturday from 8-11PM for the Funk Etown Halloween party!

– DJ Dennis Mitchell 8-11PM

– 90s Themed

– Prizes for Best Costume & Best Group Costume

– Halloween drink specials

That was posted yesterday earlier in the day.

But, of course, unfortunately, the fire has changed their plans, but they just posted what their planning for the weekend:

Recap of the Fire

Things are still new at this point, so not lots of news, but whats coming in we’ll try and keep updated (will try and make phone edits while at work, so bear with me on that). But currently we have the following:

WGAL8 News:

Thanks For Reading

Doing this update as I leave work on my phone and heading out to run some errands and such. Hopefully the editing and writing will look as normal as a regular post. Visiting my parents at a Trunk or Treat they are volunteering at, and then our errands. I might be stopping over at D. Scott’s and doing a stream, or he might be doing one by himself tonight if I’m not able to. You can find him at Knights of Nostalgia.

Was a long day at work, busy day and so hopefully this all works out. (Fingers crossed, haven’t done phone writing updates / articles on here before.)

Have a long weekend ahead for us. There is the Boneshire Brew Works 6th Anniversary Celebration Friday and Saturday (we’ll probably be going Friday night). There is the World Series. There is an Alzheimer’s Association Walk in York on Saturday morning that Amy and I will be volunteering at. And then in the evening, we’ll be over at Ming and Don’s for a Halloween party. This is on top of the regular Friday baby check – up appointments (counting the days down now). So certainly a busy weekend. Hopefully we’ll see you out at some of the stuff. We might also be popping in at Funk’s on Saturday to wish them the best and hope things get better for them.

Have a good weekend everyone!
