Intuition Ale Works has announced plans to renovate a currently empty space at the corner of Bay St. and A. Philip Randolph Boulevard adjacent to the baseball grounds and Veterans Memorial Arena.
After years of searching for a new location, Riverside's Intuition Ale Works has identified an existing building at 929 East Bay Street, to convert into a new craft brewery. Uses for the 36,170-square-foot mixed-use development will include the production and distribution of alcoholic beverages and ancillary retail components, including future commercial uses.
Plans indicate that a tap room will be included at the corner of East Bay Street and Philip Randolph Boulevard. A portion of the existing building's roof will be removed and raised to accommodate larger fermenting tanks and a 4,000 square foot roof top biergarten. The biergarten will be covered with a tensile roof system. Construction could possibly start as early as late 2014. The anticipated completion date is 2016.
