Update: A statement has been provided by the future Wedgwood Ale House owner who plans to reopen following renovations.
The Wedgwood Ale House is set to close its doors on December 28th. This sad news comes on the heels of the recent closures of the Wedgwood Thai and Bryant Cafe. We understand that the new owner of the property is not renewing the current lease and so the Wedgwood Ale House will be closing its doors before the end of the month. This means that Kip and the longtime employees will also be out of work.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for the employees who recently found out they will be losing their jobs.
Valarie at the Wedgwood in Seattle History blog also has a post about the Wedgwood Ale House’s untimely closure and great information about the history of ale houses and taverns on that site.
Please keep Kip, the owner, and his employees in your thoughts over these next few weeks. Stop by for their delicious food, toast the staff, and enjoy your last few weeks with them as our neighbors!
