The Anna City Council unanimously approved a lease and incentive agreement that will pave the way for 3 Nations Brewing to come to town. Anna’s first brewery will be located in the 5,580 square-foot building on Highway 5 that housed the city’s police and finance departments until a few months ago. If all goes well it could open as early as next June.
“We just think this is the right area to be in. It’s fast-growing and has good people,” 3 Nations managing partner John Renyer says. “Our job is to bring people downtown. We’re not here to compete with anyone. We want to become part of the community.”
“We knew from the start that 3 Nations was right for Anna and shared the same vision for Downtown,” said Joey Grisham, Director of Economic Development. “We believe the presence of 3 Nations will attract additional businesses and help take Downtown Anna to a whole new level, especially with the advent of the new community complex and future library project.”
An on-site brewer will oversee a mix of around 12 core beers and a rotating selection of seasonal and specialty brews. In addition to beer, the 3 Nations Anna outpost will sever wine and sodas. Kids and dogs will be welcome. While it will not offer food, patrons will be able to bring their own or order from nearby restaurants. There could also be food truck at some point down the road.
