Good City Brewing, a micro-brewery and tap room, will open in the summer of 2016 in the former Crank Daddy’s Bicycle Works, 2108 N. Farwell Ave. The space has been vacant for five years.
The brewery, which could open as early as June, will include a 17 barrel production system, public taproom and full-service kitchen. It will open with 8-10 different kinds of beer.
According to the website, Good City will feature "a new kind of urban taproom with the same meticulousness that we use to brew our beer. The result is an open concept brewery where customers will feel like they are a part of the brewing process."
Andy Jones, who oversaw operations at Lakefront Brewery for seven years, is Good City’s co-owner and brewmaster. Jones, a graduate of the UC-Davis Master Brewers Program, also brewed at Goose Island Brewing in Chicago.
Jones’ co-founders include David Dupee of CraftFund and local real estate developer Dan Katt. Dupee and Katt are longtime friends, East Side residents and have business experience in the craft beer industry.
"We are grateful that Milwaukee recognizes the opportunity in craft beer and the positive impact breweries have in their neighborhoods and beyond. We’ve wanted an urban brewery in the East Side area ever since 2009 when we made the intentional decision to put down roots here, so it is exciting to make it a reality," says Dupee.
