DED announces expansion of St. Louis craft Brewery

September 8, 2014

CHESTERFIELD — The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) today announced that Brew Hub will open a new craft brewery in Chesterfield. The company’s expansion includes a $16.8 million capital investment and is expected to create 55 new jobs.

Brew Hub was founded in 2012 in St. Louis by a team of beer industry executives and craft brewing experts. The company provides partner brewing for craft breweries to brew, package and distribute their brews. The facility will include brewing capacity of 75,000 barrels, a tasting room and biergarten. Merchandise and free brewery tours will also be offered. The Chesterfield location will be the company’s corporate headquarters and second brewing location. Brew Hub’s first brewery is located in Lakeland, Fla. Brew Hub has plans to open three additional breweries around the country over the next five years. 

To assist Brew Hub with its expansion in Chesterfield, the Department of Economic Development has offered a strategic economic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation and investment criteria.
