WHITEFISH — The future of a popular Whitefish brewery and grocery store is now up in the air.

The Great Northern Brewing Company has been a staple in downtown Whitefish for the past 24 years.

However, former brewery owner Jeanie Konopatzke recently sold the building to Rod Isackson of California.

All brewing operations stopped a couple of weeks ago, but the taproom will continue serving the remaining beer through Feb. 17.

Konopatzke is unsure what Isackson plans to do with the building.

Isackson's company also purchased the popular grocery store Markus Foods.

While a representative for Isackson says they will not take over operations until 2021, the future of Marcus is known at this time.
