WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

The taps at the first brewery in Wichita Falls have gone dry after it closed five months after it opened. 

Files Little, a sous chef and one of 20 employees at Sidecar Brewery, confirmed to Newschannel 6 on Tuesday the brewery on Broad Street was closing.

Little told us they were informed of the closure during a meeting last weekend.

He said sales were not what they expected and he was not too surprised by the closure but was disappointed

Little grew up in Wichita Falls and said he was happy to be part of something different.

"Well it's a unique feeling too," Little said. "A lot of people put a lot of heart into that place. For it to be cut so short, was a little unexpected. But we knew the potential was there to shut down if things didn't happen."

He said with a little more time the brewery could have been a success because the city 'likes to eat food and drink beer.'

"When you solidify your place in this town, you don't go anywhere," Little said. "Casa Manana has been there for 30 years, Pioneers have been around for 30 to 40 years. If you can establish your namesake, you won't disappear in this town."

The brewery was a family owned business opened by Michael Anderson and his son Daniel. 

We have attempted to reach out to the Andersons for more on this story and have yet to hear back. Stay with Newschanel 6 as we continue to follow this story.
