David Larsen opened YesterYears Brewery and Taproom in 2015 at 300 E. Main St. in Carrboro, NC, and had hoped eventually to pass it on to his son Bill Larsen, who worked there part time. Larsen returned to the business in January, after taking a few months off following his son’s suicide, and realized they were in financial trouble. Customers and staff have started a fund-raiser to help him pay back rent and stay open.
