Co – Hops Brewery And Cannery Seems To Have Closed Their Taproom In Hatfield, Pennsylvania

For all intents and purposes it would appear that the Co-Hops Brewery taproom in Hatfield, Pennsylvania has closed. While no official announcement has been made by the brewery there are multiple signs that point to the closure. Their address is located at: 2262 N Penn Rd, Hatfield, PA 19440. When searching them on Google Maps – you get the following:

A Google Maps search of Co-Hops Brewery and Cannery in Hatfield brings this screen up.

If you type in Co – Hops and Cannery Hatfield (because Co – Hops Brewery and Cannery brings up nothing but local brewery searches) you get this image to the left. Which states quite prominently there – “Permanently Closed”.

If you do a regular (non Google Maps or Google Images or Google Videos) Google search, it will bring up that they are listed as a business Permanently Closed. When searching the business on Google (as you will see below) their listing shows them as “permanently closed”.

Searching for social media for them also brings up no hits either anymore; their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages seem to have been removed (completely) from our searches. If you click their ‘Official Website’ (linked above) it brings you to a “domain no longer active” type of page. (It brings you to a Wix load up page, that says: “Looks like this domain isn’t connected to a website yet”.)

Co-Hops Brewery and Cannery as per Google search

Google, social media, and similar pages are typically the first way to find out if a store, business, brewery, etc has closed its door (quietly). All social media pages being blanked out / deleted, and their own homepage being deactivated, along with Google saying “Permanently Closed” are always the best ways to know.

This “quiet closing” has been a trend for breweries this year. Several others have done it earlier in 2023 and end of 2022. This might be one of the biggest signs of the future of craft beer.

Interestingly, at the Farm Show this year (2023) Co – Hops Brewery and Cannery did receive some awards. Best in Beer (Farm Show 2023 Awards).

And if all of this wasn’t enough information, a cornhole league (The Central Bucks Cornhole League) posted on January 6th that they would be done using Co-Hops location on January 19th. Even going further to state that the taproom would be closing on January 23rd.

Co – Hops Brewery and Cannery

Co – Hops might best be remembered for being a one – of – a – kind location within the Pennsylvania beer landscape, or even the craft beer industry along the East Coast in general. Unlike traditional brewing operations, the brewery did not operate as a traditional brewing business with the intention to produce its own product. Almost all of their production was done on a contract basis, meaning a majority of the beer produced from this location is meant for other breweries to sell and distribute. Contract brewing is much more prominent now than when they started, several breweries do this. (Abomination Brewing, Susquehanna Brewing, Big Truck Brewing, amongst numerous others.)

What made it even more unique was how the business was a craft beer incubator for the industry. Many of the brands produced from this location were from smaller breweries that had no taproom presence but were looking for a way to get their canned product out to customers. This is typically how contract brewing works – smaller breweries that want distribution, or a canning line, that don’t have the space, will seek out larger establishments (like Susquehanna Brewing) to use their space to produce the beers they want to sell, distribute, or even just to produce.

The following comes from Untappd. They are a micro brewery from Hatfield, Pennsylvania. They have 0 unique beers with only 155 ratings. Their brewery is listed as “No Longer in Operation”. Their global average rating (at time of Untappd locking things down on their page) is 3.83 (1.24.23). Their Untappd description reads: Co-Hops is bringing Breweries together all under one roof creating a community of brewing styles and techniques that can be shared and enjoyed. Co-Hops, is a full service production brewing and packaging facility. The ability for local breweries to can at an affordable price is the driving force behind co-hops vision. Co-Hops is the first Contract only brewing facility open to the public, our tasting room is open Thurs-Sunday.

(Their social media pages are defunct, so I won’t post them here.)
