Beck's on University closing, Lark Brewery to move

Posted: Updated:
Beck's on University Avenue in Waterloo has closed abruptly. 
"After 18 years of serving the Cedar Valley...I am sad to say, we have decided to close up shop there. The business has been struggling for a long time and is closed as of today," said owner Darin Beck.
Beck claims the biggest reason they're opening the new Beck's location at Crossroads Boulevard was because they anticipated closing the University Ave. location. He also says they are looking for a spot for a Cedar Falls location, so they can have Beck's restaurant in both communities. 
According to Beck, all employees have jobs at other Barmuda establishments. 
Lark Brewing, located in the downstairs of Beck's, will stay open until it can be moved to a new location.
Lark is submitting a proposal to move to the Public Market Building in Downtown Waterloo. 
The assets of Beck's were listed for sale back in January, but furniture, fixtures and equipment will remain intact if a buyer wants to purchase a turn-key restaurant. 
Beck says the building will be for sale in the coming weeks.
