Black Lotus Brewing Co. in Clawson closing after 13 years

Brewery opened in 2006

CLAWSON, Mich. – Black Lotus Brewing Co. will close its doors this week after spending 13 years in Clawson.

The brewery at 14 Mile Road and Main Street opened in 2006.

The owner told employees Monday that Black Lotus is closing Thursday because business hasn’t been good enough to stay open.

Manager Christina Teichman said brewery employees are trying to figure out what to do now that they are out of jobs. Teichman said the owner told them not to immediately cash their checks when they receive them Friday.

“When I talked to the owner, he said he would let us know when we could cash them," she said.
