MILWAUKEE — MillerCoors announced on Monday, September 14th that one of its breweries is closing — and those jobs could come to Milwaukee.

A MillerCoors brewery in Eden, North Carolina will close by September 2016.  While that means 520 jobs lost in North Carolina, it could add jobs in Milwaukee.

The Eden brewery produced more than seven million barrels of beer including Blue Moon seasonal products, Coors List, Miller Lite and Miller High Life. Blue Moon seasonal products will move to the Milwaukee brewery.
