After 21 years as Columbus Brewing Co. Restaurant, the venerable Brewery District haunt has closed — but will not reopen as planned.

Last month, CBC Restaurant announced plans to close for renovations and reopen later this year as Oxbow on Short. Those plans have been put aside as one of the owners, Doug Griggs, is ill.

“This post is not an easy one to make,” reads a note on the restaurant’s Facebook page published on Saturday. “We will not be reopening as Oxbow.” The last day of operation was Sunday.

“As our hearts are breaking for the restaurant, we ask all of you to send thoughts and prayers to (Griggs) and his family.”
