A Buckingham Township brewery that has been in operation since 2015 plans to close.

Mad Princes Brewing on Durham Road (Route 413) announced this week that it will be closing in the coming weeks.

“We have no firm final date as of yet, at least until the end of July, perhaps a week or two into August,” the brewery posted. “It depends on how long the beer holds out and other factors.”

Brothers Kurt and Jim Ludwig began homebrewing together in 2008 and expanding into their Buckingham Township brewery in 2015.

The brewery has become known over the years for their saisons, stouts, Altbiers and brown ales. The business does not brew IPA-style beers.

The final release will be the last sixtel of the 2022 “St. Lazarus Lemming” Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged Barleywine.

The brewery posted: “To paraphrase the great Stoic Philosopher, John ‘no IPAs’ Rambo – ‘Mad Princes got themselves killed in COVID, and they didn’t even know it…'”

“We will miss being part of the Bucks County brewing community, participating in local Beer Festivals and events, being part of the Bucks County Ale Trail, but most of all, you, our customers. Without you, we would not have been able to share this hectic and rewarding journey together,” the brewery added.
