Shipwrecked Brewpub will be torn down starting Sept. 27. Crews hope to have the entire building taken down by Oct. 2, ahead of Egg Harbor’s Pumpkin Patch Festival as a courtesy to all neighboring businesses.
The building, located on the corner of Highway 42 and Country Road G in Egg Harbor, was heavily damaged by an electrical fire on Aug. 20. Fifteen fire departments battled the blaze with support from local EMTs and the Red Cross. The building was later determined to be a total loss.
The brewery was established in 1997 and celebrated its 20th anniversary a few months before the fire. Construction of the new building is expected to last into spring. Shipwrecked hopes to reopen sometime in summer 2018.
