Hatchets & Hops is set to close their Black Rock location, which was home to a satellite taproom from Rochester’s K2 Brothers Brewing, after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Owner and founder Andrew Piechowicz says they will now focus efforts on their original downtown location at 505 Main St., Buffalo Business First reports.

The taproom opened inside the Black Rock Freight House, located at 68 Tonawanda Street, last August. In addition to axe throwing, the space featured nine K2 beers on draft, including one-off releases and exclusives.

According to K2 Brothers, they have no plans for another taproom in Buffalo at this time. But you can find their beer on tap at select locations around Western New York currently.

The closure is expected to come later this month.

Hatchets & Hops first opened for business in 2016.
