Continuing with our favorite development announcements from 2017, we move back to the Tower Grove South Neighborhood, where popular local brewery, Civil Life indicated they would be expanding operations.
The good news is they are staying right where they are at 3714 Holt Avenue and expanding just to the north nearest Beck Avenue. There is a small auto body shop building that will be demo'd for the expansion.
So, there will be a dedicated parking lot to accommodate 30 cars, a new streetscape including new sidewalks and streetlights, a kitchen expanding from 80 to 600 square feet, a retail store and most importantly...a canning line.
As of now, it is very hard to track down Civil Life in cans across the region.
NextSTL published a story in October, 2017 with quotes from Hafner that have to make you impressed with the owner's commitment to the city:
So it is good to see the St. Louis beer scene expanding with eyes on the future. All the best to Civil Life's expansion. This will be fun to watch materialize in 2018.
