Last July, Tupps Brewery of McKinney announced the intent to relocate its business to a historic McKinney grain site east of Downtown McKinney. Now, the company is sharing details on a key feature of the new location.

The B.Y.O.B. Courtyard at Tupps Brewery will be home to a unique 'Build Your Own Business' program. Set up with multiple grain bins, each bin will allow a local business to get started or stimulate growth by offering a place to work and sell their products to customers. 

“We started Tupps by brewing beer in my garage on the weekends," says Keith Lewis, founder and president of Tupps. "Our weekend hobby turned into a real idea for a business. We built the company from the ground up and we want others to have the opportunity and encouragement to do the same.”

Each B.Y.O.B business will be open on the weekends. Tupps will have multiple resources to offer each of the businesses that range from sales and marketing to coaching and advice. 

“We will also offer business seminars to the owners of these businesses to help stimulate and advance their product or service," adds Lewis. "Our taproom, brewery and events drive significant traffic which provides a built-in customer base for these B.Y.O.B participants.”

Construction is currently underway at Tupps' new location, where crews are remodeling the site's 120-year-old grain mill and building a new state of the art production brewery. The total project will encompass over 45,000 square feet of buildings on a four-acre spread. 

As of now, Tupps intends to open the space, including the B.Y.O.B. Courtyard, in December of 2022. In the meantime, Tupps is accepting applications for the B.Y.O.B program from now until June 30, 2022. This is an equal opportunity for all - anyone and everyone may apply.
