Bobby Mason, owner of the
Michigan Brewing Company
(MBC), is working with LaFollette Custom Homes
to turn the historic 109-115 E. Grand River building in Williamston into a brewpub.
According to excerpts from the article:
Inside a building with dust of years past, and sunlight peeking through windows all around, Steve Eyke is tapping notes, measurements and observations into a laptop computer.
The construction notes and design plans will, over the next several months, be morphed into decorative columns, beams, woodwork and other design elements to create a historically accurate re-creation of a signature Williamston building of the 1880s.
Foundation crews from Leik Foundation were on hand April 5 to begin the initial work of shoring up the foundation of the 109-115 E. Grand River building in the city's downtown.
The first floor will be transformed into an MBC brewpub, with the possibility of several uses on the second and third floors including offices, low-income rental property or lofts.
