    So, who is behind this? It seems very local, but I haven't heard of it. Are they an off-shoot of Old Main? Looks like their place will be only a short block away.

    No idea on food but there FB page said they will have a brewery and a taproom. I would assume they would eventually have some type of food whether it be just apps or a full menu.

    Apparently so.

    But I do think this space will soon be overbuilt like any hot and profitable industry. Then the poor and weak will start to get weeded out. As more and more microbrews popup it seems that there is more and more "average tasting" beer out there.

    Awesome, can't wait to try their beer out once its opened. Also like the fact that its downtown and will repurpose a previously vacant building.
