Well, hey there Island City Brewing followers! We are grateful to hear that so many people are excited about the coming beer business. We are excited, too. And things are coming along! Our brewery and taproom are at about 95% completion here in downtown Winona.
We are unfortunately still hung up in the muck and mire of the licensing process at the federal level. Because of this unexpected delay, it looks like we will not be making our hoped-for fall opening. However, we are hopeful that we will soon move through the red tape, and will be firing up the brew-house. It’s coming soon!
We’re going to begin providing more detailed updates as things accelerate here. In spite of the delay, we could not be more thrilled to add to Winona’s storied brew-history. We’ve got some great beers and house-made sodas in the works, and look forward to sharing them with you all as soon as we can. In the meantime, you can support our progress by grabbing yourself a hat or t-shirt at our online store.
