INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Scotty's Brewhouse and Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company ceased all operations Saturday.

A statement posted on the door of Scotty's Dawghouse on the Butler University campus said the majority owner made the decision:

This decision does not come lightly and is one of the hardest decisions to make. When filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in December of 2018, the Company had the ultimate plan to restructure and to come out stronger than ever.

With the unfortunate and untimely series of events such as closings of stores, as well as loss of some of our managed locations, this seemed to have an unfortunate and unrecoverable effect on the operations and overall sales revenues that the Company was bringing in. The Company has been struggling for some time and unfortunately could not overcome the deficit that was ahead of them.

Founded in 1996, Scotty's filed for Chapter 11 and closed stores in Carmel, Brownsburg, Indianapolis and Waco, Texas.

Locations in Noblesville and Southport closed in early 2019.

Eyewitness News reached out the Scotty's for further comment but has not received a response.
