Lowell’s first and only maritime-themed brewery, Navigation Brewing have announced that they will be moving from their current spot, a 1,200 sq. ft. modest garage bay, and into a new space which will be almost three times bigger.
Construction at the new facility has already begun over in the revitalized Mill Building, and they’re expected to move in and open up to the public in early November. Their new location will have more than 3,000 fq. ft. of space for their taproom as well as a beer garden. They still plan on pouring flights, pints while also selling growlers and bottles, but with the added bonus of now having enough space to host events as well.
The Mill Building, also known as the Western Ave Studios is home to over 300 varying artists and is located at 122 Western Ave, Lowell, MA 01851. And while PJ and Bob still face quite a bit of red tape as the finalize plans for the move, they’re trying to bring in their old equipment and will also most likely be upgrading some of it and they will be operating at their old location through October as well, following their current schedule.
As far as their brewing schedule, it won’t skip a beat and they still are planning on brewing new batches of their pale ale, IPA, Double IPA and Milk Stout. They will also brew some of their ‘Art of Darkness’ series brews which include their double porter, coffee porter, chocolate oatmeal stout and winterwarmer later this year, most likely after the move once the temperatures drop a bit.
Stay tuned for more updates as things fall into place but we definitely look forward to paying them a visit at their new spot once it opens.
