Brewery planned for former downtown winery building

July 3, 2013

Chateua Thomas 225pxThe owner of a Greenwood restaurant and bar plans to open a brewery in the former Chateau Thomas Winery building at the south end of downtown across from the Rolls-Royce Meridian Center. Shawn Cannon, who operates Fireside Brewhouse, has filed plans to renovate 7,300 square feet of space that he is leasing on the building’s ground level to open Tow Yard Brewing. Cannon, who could not be reached for comment, hopes to have the brewery open by late summer, according to an online posting searching for an experienced brewer. The historic building, completed in 1900, houses 24 loft apartments mostly on the upper two levels. The ground floor has been vacant for several years and was last occupied by the winery. Local owner Joe Pearson restored the building and is attempting to sell it for $3.75 million. “It’s a good building, and you can’t find a much better location,” said James Begley, a local real estate broker who is listing the property at 501 S. Madison Ave.
