The Scoop: Senn Bierwerks cancels plans to build U. City brewery

St. Louis will have to wait a bit longer for Senn Bierwerks to debut.

On Thursday, June 15, the company announced via Facebook that its brewery project wouldn’t be going forward at the proposed location at 7593 Olive Blvd. in University City. As The Scoop reported in April 2016, the owners intended to build a facility from the ground up at the corner of Olive and North and South boulevards.

“It had absolutely nothing to do with U. City,” said co-owner Dustin Chalfant. “They were awesome to work with. It was just us and the development team. We just couldn’t come to terms on the final details of the deal.”

Chalfant said the search for a new location is on and he hopes to open in the next 10 to 12 months.

“We’re not opposed to new construction, but we’re most likely going to retrofit an existing structure, so that’ll help increase the timeline and save a little bit of money,” he said.

Chalfant said Senn’s final home may not be in University City.

“We have some areas we’d like to be in, some because of business reasons, and some because of emotional ties. I would say we’re most likely going to move south and east of the U. City location,” he said. “There are also sites we’ve looked at inside U. City as well. Everything’s an option right now.”
