MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Good City Brewing which currently has a location on Milwaukee’s East Side, is opening a second production facility and taproom as a key part of the Entertainment Block development in downtown Milwaukee next to the new Bucks Arena.

Good City will be an anchor to the Entertainment Block that is set to open in spring of 2019. The new facility will occupy 11,000 square feet.

“Andy Jones, David Dupee and I intentionally put down roots and made a bet on Milwaukee when we founded Good City in 2016,” said Good City Co-founder Dan Katt. “The new Entertainment Block epitomizes the direction Milwaukee is going, and we couldn’t be more excited and honored to be involved in this once-in-a-generation development project.”

“Good City Brewing is a local brewery that will play a significant role in making the new Entertainment Block uniquely Wisconsin and a prime destination for food and craft beer,” said Peter Feigin, President of Head of the Herd Real Estate Development LLC, the developer of the Entertainment Block.

Good City’s downtown brewery will focus on the production of sour beers, a fast-growing category within craft beer nationwide that requires the intentional introduction of wild yeast and bacteria into the brewing process. Good City’s downtown brewery will prominently feature foeders—large wooden vats used to produce sour beers—as well as a pilot brewing system that will produce small batch and experimental offerings.

The 200-seat first-floor taproom will feature 24 Good City taps and a wood-fired oven kitchen concept by Brewery Chef Guy Davies. The second floor will feature additional outdoor patio seating and an event space with capacity for 350.

Since opening less than two years ago, Good City has already established itself as one of Wisconsin’s fastest-growing breweries. Fueled by its flagship beer Motto Mosaic Pale Ale, Good City’s aggressive growth includes a doubling of production capacity and the additions of a rooftop patio and Good City Hall event space.
