Severance would be nice, as well as someone else buying the facility and keeping the current staffers employed. There are a few larger breweries that are hiring though, so that is a plus....but yeah...sucks. While I didn't like the beer and liked their business decisions even less, it always smelled fantastic when I would drive past on mira mesa blvd and they were brewing.

and I have to imagine these moves will be more commonplace (see Bell’s) as the “old guard” loses market share to every 16oz can hazy brewer. Assuming they are, that is, but considering every bigger brewer is copying the “new recipe every week” trend that would seem to be the case.
