It was announced Thursday, February 27 that the British Beer Company would be closing its doors for the last time on Saturday, March 1. Despite the short notice, the people of Bristol and the surrounding towns came out in throngs to show the staff support, and send them off in traditional small town fashion: lots of die hard regulars, laughter and story swapping, and of course drinking.
Although the BBC had only been in Bristol a few years, it had quickly become a town favorite thanks to the cozy atmosphere, interesting beer selection, and unparalleled service. If you’ve been into the BBC more than one time, chances are good that Kevin knows your name, and your beer.
The owners came out on the final night and applauded the staff, customers, and town in a truly heartfelt toast. The BBC is a franchise throughout MA and Bristol was their only RI location. Bristol residents and enthusiasts are all hopeful that the space doesn’t stay vacant for long and whoever moves in is up for the challenge – they’ve got big shoes to fill.
