Late model, high-quality brewery equipment used by a legendary Chicago brewer to be auctioned in January 2024

CHICAGO, Dec. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Loeb Equipment, a leader in the global equipment and auction space, operating since 1880, will be conducting the auction of Metropolitan Brewing in mid-January 2024. The bankruptcy court has entrusted Loeb with the sale of assets from Metropolitan, an industry staple in German Lager brewing for the last fifteen years.

Metropolitan Brewing, a company founded by husband-and-wife team Doug and Tracy Hurst and located at 3057 N. Rockwell Street in Chicago, has filed for bankruptcy protection, and will be closing after fifteen years of business. Metropolitan specialized and only brewed lagers in typical German fashion.

"Loeb has deep experience in the auction and liquidation of brewery equipment, and we will use this expertise to conduct an auction fit for the legend that Metropolitan has been over the years."

The existing equipment at Metropolitan's infamous 20,000-square-foot location overlooking the Chicago River is of outstanding quality and condition and made by well-respected OEMs. Most units were manufactured between 2015 and the present and will be highly sought after when released to the marketplace.
