Tin Man brewery helps soon to be newlyweds after closing of restaurant

VANDERBURGH CO., IN (WFIE) -

One of Evansville's craft breweries closed its bar and restaurant over the weekend.

Tin Man Brewing Company reps posted the news on Facebook. Hundreds of customers commented and shared that post. Some of them, wondering if their gift cards will be honored.

Others, like a couple we talked with, had an event booked at the restaurant this weekend.  They needed to know right away what was going on.

It's probably one of the last things soon to be newlyweds want to hear from a vendor, "We can't host the event you booked here."

That's what happened to the Tri-State couple we talked with. The groom told us they were in panic mode for a few hours this weekend when they found out Tin Man closed and couldn't host their rehearsal dinner.

Dylan Dimaggio and his fiance, Morgan Spindler are getting married Saturday in Evansville. Their rehearsal dinner, planned for Friday night was supposed to be at Tin Man Brewery.

Dylan and his fiance loved the laid back atmosphere and of course, the beer and food at Tin Man. So, making the reservation to host family and friends here the day before they tie the knot was an easy decision.

"We just thought it was a really cool place to have our rehearsal dinner." says Dimaggio.

They were shocked like many people to hear of Tin Man's abrupt closing. They reached out to a Tin Man rep, who confirmed the news.

"I started panicking at that point," says Dimaggio/

With 5 days to go before the big day, they started calling venues, frantically trying to find a place to host their 40 guests Friday night.

That's when Tin Man reps stepped in. Offering help from another local business--just a few miles down the road at Just Rennie's Catering.

"He's great, we can't thank him enough. He seems to be friends with the family that owns Tin Man and said he's trying to help them out in any way he can."

Even though the wedding day is all about the couple, these two focused on the fact that a business closed and someone may have lost their job.

"We definitely changed our tone, we were like Ok, well, it's also somebody's job. We understand. But the fact that they're taking care of us, that's all we can ask for."

We reached out to Tin Man owners and stopped by the brewery, but haven't heard back.

Customers, wondering if their gift cards will be honored--so far, we haven't heard the company's plans.

Tin Man opened another brewery in Kokomo, Indiana earlier this year. No word on if that location is affected.
