Salty Pecker Brewing Co., a brewery in West Michigan, is closing after this week.

"We tried to get our hobby to work and the odds haven't been in our favor," owners Derek and Jennifer Olsen wrote in a post announcing the closure. 

The Norton Shores brewery opened in September 2021, and the closure was announced over the weekend. According to the owners, their landlord is selling the building. The pain of moving coupled with declining sales led to the decision to close.
