Brewer coming to Kannapolis next year

Nov. 17. A craft brewery from Connecticut plans to open a brewery and taproom in downtown Kannapolis next year. Third Dimension Brewery will lease property at 100 West Avenue from the City of Kannapolis. It is adjacent to what is expected to be the future home of the Kannapolis Intimidators.

Bill Collins, who owns Firefly Hollow Brewing in Bristol, Ct., will spend about $600,000 to upfit the property. The brewery is expected to open in Fall of 2017.

“This is one of the best downtown revitalization plans I have seen and I am excited to be part of this effort”, said Collins.

The city lease, at $81,000 a year, is for five years with the option to purchase the property.

“A brewery and taproom is an ideal partner for our baseball team and the proposed sports and entertainment venue which is planned for the adjacent property. We are pleased that our Downtown Revitalization Plan is attracting national attention and garnering the type of businesses we know will be successful in our City,” said Kannapolis City Manager Mike Legg.
