The restaurant scene in downtown Greenville no longer boasts a brewery, with the closing of Ham's Restaurant and Brew House on Evans St.
Signs on the door speak of "unforeseen circumstances" as to why the popular restaurant is now closed for business. The brew master told the Daily Reflector that the parent company informed him of the abrupt closing on Sunday. No specific reasons for the closing have been given.
Other Ham's restaurants in Eastern Carolina have shut down in recent months. Kinston's location closed in October.
The original Ham's opened in Greensboro in the early 1930s. The website lists 14 locations in North Carolina and Virginia. However, Greenville is still on the list.
