After three years in business, FireWheel Brewing Co. will be closing its doors on Nov. 15.
FireWheel founder and head brewer Brad Perkinson posted a statement on the brewery’s Facebook page:
On Saturday, November 14th 2015, FireWheel Brewing will be throwing the Midnight Ninja a 3rd Birthday Party, one of the biggest parties we have ever had. After that party has finished, FireWheel Brewing Co. will be closing its doors permanently. I know to some, this will come as a surprise, but just know that it is the best decision for FireWheel. I would like to thank all who have helped me, Brad Perkinson, realize my dream of owning and operating a brewery, and making the best craft beer I could. Even now as it comes to an end, we are making some of the best beer we ever have, and it will be all available during the Ninja Party! I do not want to go into details about the shutdown, but just know that I am grateful for the time I had as a brewer/owner and I am looking forward to the next opportunity, whatever that may be.
The Rowlett, Texas-based brewery opened in 2012 with a small four taking system located in a 2,500-square-foot building and had been working on getting a canning line set up to can beers in recent months.
According to the post, FireWheel will continue to sell beer until Nov. 14.
