The pilot reported that all indications were normal during the pre-landing checks. After landing, the brakes were applied but there was no pressure in the left brake. The pilot then initiated a ground loop to the right as speed and distance remaining were inadequate for a go-around. During the ground loop as the aircraft was sliding sideways across the grass, the left main wheel entered a depression. The sudden stop caused damage to the left wing and main wheel, as well as the nose gear and propeller. All occupants exited the aircraft safely.
