All signs of BrewerGate 2012—including NorthGate Brewing's original blog post and Northbound Smokehouse and Brewpub's rebuttal on its Facebook page—have been stricken from the Internet.
Both breweries have released nearly-identical statements—NorthGate's on its Twitter and Facebook page and Northbound's on its Facebook page—saying that they are "currently in discussions" and have agreed to "end all discussions on media (social or otherwise) we control." They have both also taken down their original statements.
But never fear, Beer Pulse has the text of the original statements, if you need to catch up.
