CA: Ghost River Brewing tap room grant approved by city agency
“Ghost River Brewing Co. was approved Wednesday for a $66,455 grant.
The Center City Development Corp. approved the storefront improvement grant for the craft beer brewery at 827 S. Main at Crump Boulevard. The money will cover exterior portions of Ghost River’s planned tap room, scheduled to open later this year.
Ghost River owners are spending about $250,000 on interior improvements to create a space where customers can consume its beer on premises. Exterior improvements, including a patio, awnings, landscaping, windows and more are estimated to cost about $132,000.
Downtown Memphis Commission director of development Brett Roler said the grant would be the largest yet under the program, topping a $50,000 grant that went to High Cotton Brewing Co. on Monroe.
Roler said South Main and the South End of Downtown have a population of about 3,300 people, and that’s expected to double within two to three years.”
