A New Brewery and Restaurant is Opening Soon in REO Town
It's taken some time, but there's finally an opening date!
Ellison Brewery & Spirits announced back in 2018 that they'd be opening a second location in REO Town Lansing to accompany their first location in East Lansing near Okemos. However, the long process of getting approvals, making remodeling changes, and of course, the impact that COVID-19, has put that 2018 opening a bit behind schedule. The Lansing State Journal reports that the grand opening is right around the corner.
Ellison Brewery & Spirits Opening New REO Town Location
If you're a big fan of the East Lansing location's beer, vibes, and community, get ready to experience that and more at the REO Town location. Mark Logusz, the Sales and Marketing Director, says there will be a soft opening sometime around January 20th. After which, they'll have the Grand Opening on February 12th.
While this new location in REO Town will offer much of the same spirits, beer, and food as the East Lansing location, it looks like this spot will differ in one major way, and that's with a large event space.
The REO Town location has taken over a part of a historic building; "the last REO Motor Car Co. building left standing in the city," so there's a lot of space to work with. About 20,000 square feet actually. And it's because of this space that the REO Town location will have an upstairs room available for events like wedding receptions, baby showers, and more that can host up to 200 people.
