Downtown Ashland City will soon become home to a new brew pub and microbrewery.
Marrowbone Creek Brewing Company will be opening its doors in a few months at 240 S. Main St., which used to be a local automotive business. Owners Chris and Julie Morris said they had been interested in brewing and breweries for some time, and once the pandemic hit, they felt Ashland City was the perfect place to make their dream a reality.
“We noticed that while the area was growing, but no craft beer options with a community space. When the old King Automotive building became available, we knew that would be a great location with lots of space,” Chris Morris said.
The first phase is the taproom in the front section of the building, where draft and bottled beer will be served and sold, along with growlers and light food options in a comfortable and casual environment.
“We are hoping to get Phase 1 going in November or December. Phase 2 will be a large open space in the rear of the building, and that will include a large outdoor space with seating, a kid’s garden, and a space for games like corn-hole or giant Jenga. The indoor space will have a small stage in the corner for live music, it will also be available for events like receptions or meetings. We will have Wi-Fi in case you just need a place to get some work done,” Morris said.
He added that a microbrewery is in the works for the rear section of the building. Morris said he hopes to start brewing next spring and gradually replace the guest taps with in-house brews. The rear area of the building will hopefully open around February or March.
“We will have rotating specialty taps, that may include Belgians, sours, or more adventurous varieties,” Morris said.
The community can support Marrowbone Creek by checking out their website, www.mcbc.beer and liking them on social media.
“We may have some opportunities for those who want to swing a hammer or paint in exchange for an early membership in the Mug Club,” he said.
