Resurgence Brewing Co. celebrates Grand Opening in the Old First Ward

Resurgence Brewing Co. is hosting a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony today, followed by the kick off of their grand opening weekend. From 1:30pm today (Ribbon Cutting Ceremony – ends at 3pm) through Saturday, the brewery will feature:

  • The opening of the 2nd floor
  • Live music
  • Specialty releases
  • Specials

This is your chance to come face to face with the 30,000 square foot Chicago Street facility (learn more) and all of its craft brew glory. The highly anticipated three day celebration marks another game changer for the Old First Ward, which has been experiencing some exciting developments as of late.

“We are tremendously excited to show off what we have been working on here for several years,” said Jeff Ware, President of Resurgence (RBC).  The project has taken about 3 years from concept to completion.  It features a rehab of the former EB Holmes Machinery Company Pattern Building for the tap room/ banquet center and a 20,000 square feet addition for the production brewing facility.  The new facility offers a full bar and kitchen menu.  We listened to our customers – they asked for more food options and larger banquet/event space, so that’s what we built. I think it came out great.”

The Chicago Street brewery tap room will be open Tuesday through Sunday.  The original Niagara Street brewery and Beer garden will remain open to the public normal hours and will feature the new experimental beers RBC is working on.
