E-Malt.com News article: USA, MI: Oracle Brewing Co. to open in Old Town Saginaw by spring 2015
Oracle Brewing is coming to Old Town Saginaw early next year, mlive.com reported on September, 22.
Oracle Brewing Co. co-owners Cody Smith and Chris Younk are busy renovating the space.
When the renovations are done, the atmosphere inside Oracle Brewing will look like "something between clean, modern and still holding onto the original construction," Smith said.
Smith and Younk aim to open Oracle Brewing for business in March or April 2015.
"Brewing is something both of us were kind of passionate about," Smith said. "I had some professional brewing experience, and he's been homebrewing for a while."
Before pursuing their venture, Smith was the head brewer at Midland Brewing Co. for about three years.
Smith said he looked at a few possible locations for the microbrewery, but always wanted to open it in Saginaw "to help rebuild the community. Just be a part of that."
Smith said Oracle Brewing could attract a different crowd to Old Town.
"People travel to seek out a brewery, versus just the regular bar crowd," he said. "I think it will just help improve the image and maybe let other people see that it is a good area and that we can have more businesses down here."
The brewery will offer 12 taps to start, and could brew up to 50 beers over the course of a year.
