ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A cozy taproom that opened less than two years ago in the Imperial Building has called it quits, and caught some of its fans by surprise.
The Monks’ Corner Taproom on its Facebook page gave no reason for the sudden closure of the 73-seat venue at Silver and Third SW.
“Made with care and prayer, we’ve truly enjoyed serving you, your friends and your families at our humble establishment,” the post says. “Please continue to look for Monks’ Ales in stores and stay tuned for future updates.”
The taproom, in the ground floor commercial space at the Imperial, was operated by Abbey Brewing Co., a venture born at Monastery of Christ in the Desert near Abiquiu. The monastery is home to a small brewing system where all Abbey beers are tested and honed.
