Morgan Alexander plans to close the AMOCAT Cafe so he can focus more on his beer-brewing arm, Tacoma Brewing Co.
"Friends, thank you for your support over the past three plus years," he posted on the AMOCAT Facebook page today. "It has been a fun ride and I'm glad I had the chance to fulfill the longtime obsession of running a coffee shop. For me, the best part was meeting so many awesome people. As many of you know, I have been pursuing another longtime obsession: making beer. To this end, I have recently made the not so easy decision to close Amocat and dedicate 100 percent of my time to the Tacoma Brewing Co."
A "Grand Closing Event" is set for 5 to 9 p.m. Oct. 11. There will be cheese, crackers, and of course, beer.
