Some changes are brewing at a local brewing company.
Court documents show the Michigan Brewing Company was evicted from its property in Webberville. It happened just days ago.
The lights are off, the closed sign is up and the doors are locked at the Michigan Brewing Company's headquarters and pub in Webberville.
When 6 News stopped by the facility no one was inside, but we did see a security guard and several curious customers stop by.
Webberville pizza shop owner Jim Sommer says the eviction has taken the community by surprise.
"It's just a sad thing to see a business close anywhere, Webberville's small enough, I'm really sorry they're going out," said Sommer.
We tried reaching MBC's president Bobby Mason and the company's lawyer several times for comment, but they didn't return our calls.
As for the MBC Lansing restaurant, the general manager says there are no plans for it to shut down. Because even though they share a similar name, they're actually a separate business.
"We're not Michigan Brewing Company, we're MBC Lansing," said March Wolbert, "The most misunderstood thing that's out there right now is that we are a replica of what's out there and that's not true at all. We're something completely and totally different."
Wolbert says their separation gives them a lot more leeway and flexibility.
But since the restaurant carries Michigan Brewing Company beer, he says his restaurant has felt an impact.
"We missed one shipment of beer. We get a shipment weekly. There's only been one little hiccup and I always keep a pretty good cushion so we're sitting pretty right now,"said Wolbert.
But if they do run out of Michigan Brewing Company beer, MBC Lansing plans to brew more of its own.
An investor in Michigan Brewing Company says the company in Webberville employs 28 people. No word yet if they've lost their jobs.
