Big Rack Brewery, which was located at the Kennedy Vineyard in New Madison, has closed.

The owners posted a message on their Facebook page Wednesday announcing the permanent closure of the winery and brewery.

"Thank you all for your support over the years," they wrote. "We have loved being a part of so many peoples (sic) lives! God Bless!"

Kennedy Vineyard received its state brewing permit in June 2017. The winery had opened in 2013.
