Bell's Brewery, Inc. Says “YESCANABA!”

Larry Bell, a leader in the craft beer industry for almost 30 years, will meet in special session with Escanaba City Council Thursday morning to discuss purchasing a 3.16 acre parcel in the city’s Whitetail Industrial Park for the construction of a state of the art craft brewery and bottling facility. The proposed brewery plans to produce a variety of beers and ales to be distributed across the UP and adjacent northern states. In addition to the 3.16 acre parcel adjacent to Michigan Meats just off Danforth Road, Bell is also asking the council to give him the right of first refusal to purchase additional unplatted land next to the parcel if needed for future expansion, according to Escanaba City Manager Jim O’Toole. If approved by the council, a site plan review of the property development will take place before the Planning Commission so that land use requirements and zoning requirements can be reviewed and so that there is a public understanding of the project.
