Mill Creek

Announcing the news Monday afternoon on Facebook, local brewing company Mill Creek is closed.

The company posted a letter by Chris Going, founder and CEO of the brewery. The letter states that Mill Creek employees were informed Friday of the closure and the company will be filing for bankruptcy.

The letter continues to say it was a tough decision but after exploring other options, they were left with no choice but to close their doors.

“Since the beginning, our brand has centered around 4 words: Less Fuss More Beer. This was more than a slogan to us; it was a mission. In a world and industry that all too often places the focus on the liquid in your glass, we sought to create an approachable beer brand that would be so easy drinking and great tasting that it would help people to focus less on the judgment of the liquid and more on the truly important things in life: conversation, friendship, laughter, community,” shared Chris Going, CEO and Founder of Mill Creek.

At the end of the message, Going mentioned there might be hope for the brand to continue.

Stating, “Let’s hope someone still sees the value of this thing we all love. Let’s hope there’s a new day for Mill Creek on the horizon. Let’s hope we have another chance down the road to lift a Lil Darlin, or Landmark, or 615, or Neon Daze, in celebration of new life for Mill Creek, a brewery built for you.”

Mill Creek Brewery Co was founded four years ago in Nolensville. They also had taprooms in Nashville and most recently Franklin when they occupied the former location of Mantra Ales. 

Mill Creek Brewing Co is located at 2008 B Johnson Industrial in Nolensville. Nashville Taproom, 2905 12th Avenue South, Nashville, and Franklin, 216 Noah Drive. For more updates, follow Mill Creek on Facebook.
