Hofbrauhaus Closing Doors After 83 Years
WEST SPRINGFIELD — Hofbrauhaus owners Joe and Liz Stevens will close its doors for good on April 1, the couple announced on Facebook on Wednesday.
“It is official — as of Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018 (and no, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke), the Hofbrauhaus will be closing its doors for good,” they wrote. “We thank everyone for their patronage and support over the years, but we are ready to move on and make some big, wonderful, exciting, and maybe a little scary changes in our lives. We will be exploring our options in the coming months and will keep you all posted when we have more important news to share. But for now, all we can say is ‘auf wiedersehen!’”
Hofbrauhaus, the German restaurant that became one of the region’s most iconic eateries, first opened its doors in 1935.
