Hops Restaurant and Brewery in Newington has closed its doors after 10 years.

The restaurant and microbrewery that opened its Newington location on the Berlin Turnpike in 1999 closed after business on Sunday. It was the only site in Connecticut.  

Employees were notified of the closure last week, but company officials and the local manager have not elaborated on the cause for the closure.

NBC Connecticut's calls to the regional manager have not been returned.

This is at least the second chain restaurant to close on the Berlin Turnpike.  Applebee's previously closed and remains vacant.  

Another store closing on the Pike is Blockbuster, the video rental store.
