Updated statement from co-founder Eve Sieminski: “It is with heaviest of hearts that we are making this announcement. After almost 10 years our doors are closing permanently. It has been a pleasure getting to know you all and serving you the best beer we could. The friendships we made will last a lifetime and we want to thank you for being part of the Iron Fist family.”
Founded in 2010, Vista-based Iron Fist Brewing is now closed except for certain pickup orders. The family-founded company was instrumental in developing the Vista beer scene, including the Vista Brewers Guild. In 2015, the Sieminskis opened a satellite tasting room in Barrio Logan, hosting community events like art shows and firefighter benefits.
At time of publication, company reps hadn’t replied to a request for comment regarding the closure. At this Facebook page, you can see what beers (cans/bottles/kegs) were available for Vista pickup as of March 26; email email@example.com for more info.
