Shannon Brewing to call Keller home

Just two months ago to the day, I reported here that the soon-to-be Shannon Brewing Company was scouting locations in the Mid-Cities.  Today, news has arrived that they will be putting down roots in Keller, a city which was recognized by CNN Money Magazine as one of the "Best Places to Live" in 3 of the last 5 years.

Per an advance copy of their pending newsletter:

They will construct "a new brewery building on an existing slab at 818 North Main Street, Keller, TX 76248. This also happens to be the address of Samantha Springs, a natural source of exceptional drinking water. Shannon Brewing Company has secured the rights to brew our beer with pure Samantha Springs water straight from the spring, through our filtering system [and] right into our brewing tanks."

The water will be chlorine and fluoride free and will undergo no further treatments, ensuring that all of Shannon's beers will be brewed with pure spring water.

Regarding the site, owner Shannon Carter notes that the brewery will share 20 acres of land with Samantha Springs, providing ample room for events and parking, as well as for expansion down the road.  On the topic of events, the brewery will incorporate an indoor tasting room along with a 2,500 square foot outdoor beer garden. The outdoor space will also feature a "green area" where a supply of fresh hops will be grown for use in seasonal brews throughout the year.

As to the timeline, Carter expects to complete construction and occupy the building before year's end.

Follow the brewery's progress through their newsletter, or follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
