EDEN, N.C. (AP) - A brewery that employs 500 people in the Rockingham County city of Eden is closing its doors.

County and city officials confirm to local media outlets on Monday that the MillerCoors brewery will close within a year.

County officials say the closing will cost the county, in addition to the lost jobs, about $1.2 million in annual revenue.

According to the company’s website, the brewery opened in 1978. It has an annual brewing capacity of 9 million barrels.
