The beer taps at Clarendon’s Sehkraft Brewing are now permanently dry.
That’s because the bar, restaurant and hangout at 925 N. Garfield Street officially closed today, with the help of the Arlington County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s deputies showed up today around noon to evict the business, according to Major Susie Doyel, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman. A representative for the landlord said the business had until noon today to vacate the building but declined to give more information about the eviction.
Court records show that legal proceedings leading up to the eviction were first initiated in October.
A number of people could be seen inside the business this afternoon, talking and taking stock of the contents while workers with tools walked in and out of the building.
Sehkraft held one last hurrah for customers last night, with live music playing and the college football championship on TV. The brewpub first announced it was closing on Friday evening.
We were unable to reach a Sehkraft Brewing representative for comment. The business first opened a little more than a year ago.
