Detroit, MI: Batch Brewing Company continues its growth with the acquisition of a new building in Detroit’s Milwaukee Junction / North End area. Previously Chaps Automotive, the building located at 2841 East Grand Boulevard will serve initially as a packaging and distribution facility, as well as Batch Brewing Company’s ‘Funk Room’, providing additional space for their mixed culture / sour beer program, as well as their wild fermented cider program.
“Batch Brewing Company actually got its start in the North End neighborhood at the Jam Handy complex in 2012,” said founder Stephen Roginson. “We’re thrilled to grow our business here and create a community gathering place for the residents and the office dwellers of the North End and New Center areas.”
Future plans are being developed for the location, including an eventual second taproom. This will bring Batch Brewing Company’s beer, cider and food to the North End area, as well as allowing for a community gathering and event rental space.
“The strong community ethic and quality product that Batch Brewing Company brings adds another great craft business to this emerging neighborhood,” said Sue Mosey, Executive Director of Midtown Detroit Inc.
