Hopsters Appears to Be Headed Toward Liquidation

A couple of months ago, it was reported that a local brewery with two locations in the Boston area had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Now we have learned that it is now apparently heading toward Chapter 7 liquidation.

According to an article from Brewbound, a judge has rejected a bid by Hopsters to prevent a trustee from changing the bankruptcy filing to a liquidation in a Thursday hearing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the District of Massachusetts. Back in September, Hopsters founder/owner Lee Cooper filed for bankruptcy and was looking to reorganize at that time, reinventing the business in order to keep it going. A check on its website indicates that the site appears to have been taken down, and there is no indication as to the status of the company on social media sites. (More on the apparent liquidation of Hopsters can be found in this tweet from @EdB_SP.)

Hopsters first opened in Newton Corner in 2013, with a second location opening in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood in 2018.
