Brewery closes two locations, sells a third

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Blue Grasshopper Brewery is closing two locations and has sold a third location following a bankruptcy filing, the Rio Rancho Observer reports.

The first brewery opened in 2014 and co-owner Greg Nielsen said the expansion to three locations in total happened too fast and is what ultimately led to the closures.

The Arrowhead Ridge Drive location in Rio Rancho and the Downtown Albuquerque locations are closing while the location in Riverside Plaza will remain but new ownership and with a new name.

The Riverside Plaza location will be renamed as The Hopper Brewery with plans to open once the pandemic has ended.
