The Tap and Grind, one of the few downtown Orlando hole-in-the-wall beer bars, will close for good at the end of the month.

The downtown watering hole, located at 59 W. Central Blvd, said in a weekend Instagram post that they are currently closed for the rest of this month, but will reopen on Nov. 29 for one last hurrah.

The night will feature a tap takeover with Toppling Goliath, 2 Pioneers and Calusa breweries.

Tap and Grind did not give a specific reason for the closure, though back in May of 2017 the company was working on a possible second Mills 50 location. It's unclear if that project is still in the works.
