Black Lotus Brewing Co. in downtown Clawson apparently served its last beers Wednesday after more than 12 years in business, the Detroit Free Press reports. It served a variety of craft beverages, including the award-winning barley wine Ninja Pirate.

Two employees told the Freep's Susan Selasky about the closure Monday. One says the bar came up short on revenue.

Black Lotus is the third well-known Oakland County craft alcohol business to shut in recent months, the paper notes.  Cellarmen's in Hazel Park shut in July and Axle Brewing Co. in Ferndale closed in June.
