The Scoop: The Civil Life purchases neighboring building

October 13th 04:10pm, 2015




The Civil Life Brewing Co. announced today, Oct. 13, that owner Jake Hafner has purchased the vacant auto body shop next door and has grand plans – to tear it down

After working with city officials and surrounding businesses, Hafner said he was able to acquire the building in anticipation of growth. The immediate plans, though, are to raze the building and expand the parking lot. “There are no guaranteed plans for expansion,” he said. “If draft sales increase, we have the space to add on, and our bar business is doing really well, so we could expand there. We’re in this for the long haul.”

Whether the brewery adds production or brewpub space, Hafner plans to let expansion happen naturally. “I guess I’m kind of old-fashioned when it comes to growth,” he said. The newly acquired building will come down and the parking lot expanded in 2016.
