The nearly 7,000-square-foot building will be an addition to the sprawling Crosstown Concourse building, which will include residential and office tenants as well as a small market and other retail space when it opens to the public in 2017.

Crosstown Brewing Co. will brew beer and sell it in an open-to-the-public tap room.

“The brewery will be able to sell its beer in the market and the restaurants in the building and of course throughout Memphis,” said Todd Richardson, co-founder of Crosstown Concourse.

On behalf of the Crosstown Concourse developers, a major modification application was recently filed with the Memphis and Shelby County Office of Planning and Development. The developer is seeking an amendment to the approved planned development to allow new construction.

The new building will sit on a half-acre parcel on the west side of the campus, near the part of the Crosstown Concourse building set aside for retail tenants.

Crosstown Brewing Co. was founded by Clark Ortkiese and Will Goodwin. Crosstown Brewing Co. announced its brand last year but had not named its first location.

“We’re very excited,” Richardson said. “We’ve always loved the idea of not just being about retail but being about production and education. With French Truck Coffee coming in the building, which will also roast coffee and do tasting and education related to coffee, we’ll be able to do that also with beer and Crosstown Brewing Co.”

Ortkiese and Goodwin have ties to the brewing industry and both have been home brewers for some time.
