Mothership inside Earthbound Beer will close Sunday


Mothership
, the food concept inside Earthbound Beer run by Vista Ramen that debuted last fall, is shutting down. The last day of service will be Sunday, June 24.


“We want to thank Earthbound for the opportunity,” said Vista Ramen and Mothership chef-owner Chris Bork. “We wish them the best.”


Bork said Mothership will serve its regular menu and be open from noon to 6 p.m. as usual on Sunday.


“We’re sorry to see them go,” said Earthbound co-owner Stuart Keating. “But the numbers weren’t working out.”


Keating said that there will be a new in-house food service starting up in the coming weeks featuring a build-your-own snack plate featuring what he deemed “classic after-school snacks.”


“I’d like to [do] mini grilled cheese sandwiches,” Keating said. “I really like Vienna sausages and saltines, but I don’t think I could pull that off."


Keating said there’s a possibility another outside purveyor may come in to provide eats at the brewery, though there are no plans yet. “We’re all about change and switching things up,” he said.
