We’ve scored big with this one, Cola. A giant sports-themed brewery could be headed our way.
Plans were released for a major new brewery to open on North Main St. (in the 3400 block) in the old Stone Manufacturing plant.
Here’s what you can expect.
• The building is ~63,000 sq. ft. situated on a 3.5 acre lot – giving it the potential to become one of the largest breweries in the state.
• A sports-theme, with a large area for indoor sports + an outdoor activity space (think beach volleyball, pickleball, a mini-soccer field, a rock-climbing wall, and more).
• 400+ parking spots 🥳
• And of course, an assortment of beers. Prospective brewers are already in the works.
According to property owner Scott Middleton (developer of The Main Course, Good Life Cafe + The Grand), the project will revolutionize Cola’s beer scene + spur large revitalization efforts by drawing other businesses to the area and creating another bustling neighborhood of Columbia. Local officials also suspect the brewery will play a role in making the area more walkable.
In the Cola office, we’re excitedly (and patiently) waiting as the brewery is expected to open in the next two years.
