The bankruptcy court has approved the company’s initial requests and will allow it to keep paying its 22 employees, reports TheStreet.

“Ever since COVID hit in 2020 we have been pivoting every few months to adjust our focus on how to rebuild our business for the future.

As pandemic aid dried up and inflation ramped up, we have been running out of room to pivot.

We are making progress by adding contract packaging work but unfortunately, we need to use this Ch. 11 process to reorganize and restructure our business to build a strong and sustainable company going forward,” part-owner Zak Koga said in a media statement.

The company’s taproom remains open and it continues to produce beer for its distribution partners.

Karben4 lost just under $1 million in 2023 which the company blamed on a general downturn in the craft beer market.

The owners, according to a local media outlet, are in talk with an investor and remain hopeful that the company will survive and not have to be liquidated.

The company has also recently expanded its business model with “contract manufacturing, which the company explains on its website.

“Some beverage producers don’t have tank capacity or abilities to produce on a large scale, but would like to distribute their product on a large scale.

During the pandemic Karben4 was able to assist breweries that were unable to sell beer in their taprooms continue to sell their product by assisting in canning and production,” the company shared.
