Resurgence Brewing plans to take over a former industrial building in the Old First Ward and turn it into a bigger brewery and taproom.
Setting up shop at 55 Chicago St., the former E & B Holmes Machinery Co., will allow Resurgence to brew enough beer to distribute across New York State, company officials said in a post on the Buffalo-Niagara Brewers Association blog.
"Tentative plans call for a 2 story taproom with food service in the existing Pattern Building, banquet space for parties of all sizes, and open air beer gardens for guests to enjoy," the post said. "They hope to have the facility operational by late summer."
Resurgence's Niagara Street brewery and taproom will become a research and development facility, it said.
