Brewery news

The Beltway Brewing Company has created its final batch of beer, the owner announced on social media. The facility will continue operating until they run out of beer, the Patch reported on January 6.

"It’s time to say goodbye," founder Sten Sellier wrote on Facebook. "When you decide to start a brewery, you always know that one day you’ll brew your last batch, but you never expect it to be the one you just brewed."

Sellier did not provide a specific reason for the closure. However, he alluded to "macroeconomic factors facing the brewing industry and the commercial real estate market here in Loudoun County."

Sellier left an engineering career in California in 2011 to begin brewing full-time. A D.C. native, he opened the Beltway Brewing Company to help other start-up brewers get their start, according to the brand's website.

"I am incredibly proud and thankful to my team for their iron-willed fortitude and dedication in facing the many challenges all businesses faced over the past few years," Sellier wrote on Facebook. "Unfortunately, recent hurdles were greater than our ability to overcome them."

The brewery encouraged patrons to come visit the facility as long as they're open. On Jan. 28, the brewery will hold a “Celebration of a Decade of Beltway Brewing."

"We look forward to seeing you all over the coming weeks and waxing nostalgic with you over a glass of your favorite brews," Sellier wrote. "Come thirsty, leave happy, and bring the memories with you from your friends at Beltway Brewing."
