Believing the Arts District is becoming less about artistic endeavors and more about craft beer, Jimmy Doyle and his team have named their forthcoming microbrewery and taproom Beer District Brewing, now under construction at 914 S. Main St.
Hoping the neighborhood will soon rival Henderson’s already well-established Beer District, the downtown brewers will replace a 4,014-square-foot auto body shop sitting between Hoover and Coolidge avenues and add a 222-square-foot patio.
During an earlier crowdfunding campaign, Beer District secured $50,000 worth of equipment ready to produce barrel-aged beers, lagers, IPAs, and event beers, including a Christmas special.
Half a mile away, another brewery has also filed permit paperwork, but has shared less information on its own progress. Formerly known as the Beer Keg, Proview Series 32 LLC intends to open a 1,203-square-foot tavern and 1,542-square-foot outdoor patio at 1321 S. Main St., on the corner with Imperial Avenue. Very early renderings imagined the space as a combination brewery and barbecue restaurant.
