Just 2 years later, Main & 6 is expanding: roof top bar, event space & more brewing capacity.

They just hired Alex Leuthold away from Intuition.  I know he was a big part of that operation, so that's a pretty big deal.

Great to hear.  One of my favorite spots, and Dennis is a helluva guy.

Isn't this the second person they've lured away from Intuition?  Or at least the second person from another local brewer?  IIRC, scuttlebutt was that they'd already gotten someone from around here previously... ?

Not sure about that.  I did talk to Alex's brother Riley Leuthold (manager of the Posting House) on Friday about the project.  He said the remodel is in adjacent space and so operation will not be affected during construction.  The space was purchased a couple years ago with the expectation of expansion.  Good business strategy and kudos to them.

(sorry if this was all mentioned in the damn business journal article that is hidden behind a ridiculous pay wall)

Main & Six Brewing Company plans an expansion that would bring another dining option to Springfield and the neighborhood’s first rooftop bar.

Owner Dennis Espinosa said he and his mother, co-owner Cindy Lasky, want to renovate a 3,600-square-foot building next to the brewery and connect the two. That space will house a restaurant, kitchen, barrel aging room and restrooms.

He will add a 2,000-square-foot rooftop space above the addition. The rooftop beer garden will be about 500 square feet. There also will be office space on the second floor.

In addition, he will add a 100-square-foot outdoor patio and pave the adjacent lot for parking.

The expansion will bring Main & Six’s total space to about 7,200 square feet at 1636 N. Main St.
