Days before its fourth anniversary celebration (December 14), Norfolk independent craft brewery Coelacanth announced on Facebook it will close its doors at year’s end.

“It’s been an amazing, crazy, fun, hard, interesting, fulfilling and stressful 4 years. But we’ve decided to close our doors by the end of the year,” owner/founder Kevin Erskine wrote.

Coelacanth Brewing Company produced several award-winning beers including Passionfruit Gose, The Captain, Old Glory and Quiet Storm.
