[June 18 update: According to a source, Union Brewhouse may not have closed for good after all, with a Facebook post from the place saying that "There was a perfect storm of equipment failure and it will take us some time to get things up and running again. With that being said, we're taking time to repair and renovate (and relax)." As soon as more information comes in on the exact status of the place, we will post another update here.]
