Roslindale Craft Beer Cellar owner Bryan Reeves announced today he's shutting his store in the basement of the Roslindale Square substation. Reeves says he will stay open as long as he still has stock left - which he'll be discounting 25% starting Tuesday.
Reeves opened his store in January, 2017, the first time the former trolley substation had been used for anything in 45 years.
His store, with only small signs on the side of the hulking building, was supposed to be followed by a large restaurant on the main floor, but those plans fell apart. Historic Boston, Inc., and Roslindale Village Main Street have yet to find a permanent tenant for the space, but have run various popup events, including winter beer halls the past two winters.
Roslindale Square residents with a taste for craft beers will still be able to find them at Chance Liquors on Corinth Street.
