Fenton gets new Brewery

What could be better than paddling 7 miles from Holly to Fenton ?
Getting a great meal and a cold beer at the ol' firehouse in Fenton after the gear is stowed.

Construction should be getting underway very soon on a new brewery in Fenton.
Michigan Brewing Company is leasing the old fire hall building at South Leroy and Ellen Streets from the city.
The city has worked out a seven-year lease agreement with the owners in which they pay $1 per year,
plus property taxes on the 73-year-old building.

The Fenton Downtown Development Authority is supplying up to 33 percent of the project costs, not to exceed $400,000.
Deputy City Manager and DDA Director Michael Burns tells WHMI that the company is in the process
of getting construction estimates and can pick up their building permit.
Once they get estimates, Burns says he thinks they’ll be ready to begin construction
so hopefully pretty soon and be operational by the end of the year.

The Fenton brewery and restaurant will sell beer, wine and whiskey that will be produced on site.
