Tallgrass Brewing halts production

The parking lot at Tallgrass Brewing Company sits nearly empty Friday morning. The Manhattan brewery suspended production Thursday.

Tallgrass Brewing Company suspended production Thursday, but founder Jeff Gill remains hopeful the work stoppage will be temporary.

Gill, who founded the brewery in 2006, said Tallgrass is “very close” to getting the investors it has been seeking. This would lead to a new group taking controlling interest in the company.
