A north Fayetteville brewery that closed recently is under new ownership, and could reopen soon.

According to a post by local business brokerage AEGIS, who had listed the business for sale recently, Apple Blossom Brewing Company sold to new owners in early October.

Anthony Trammell of the Trammell Restaurant Group, LLC has purchased the business, AEGIS said, and plans to reopen the restaurant portion of the business before the end of this year, with the brewery to follow sometime in early 2021.

The name of the business, website, and social media accounts will remain the same.

Apple Blossom was the brainchild of Smoke & Barrel Tavern founders Evan McDonald, Sammie Stephenson, Joe Utsch and Al Schaffer, along with brewery partners Ching Mong and Daniel Smith. The partners opened the brewery and restaurant in January 2013 at 1550 E. Zion Road in north Fayetteville.

McDonald announced the closure of the business in a video posted to the brewery’s Facebook page back in June.

We’ve been working on getting in touch with Trammell for more information on his plans for the business, and we’ll add an update here once we hear back from him.
