Surly Brewing Company announced Friday it is looking for money to help clean up an industrial site near the University of MInnesota campus in order to build a new brewery, according to it's website.
The site, which used to be a potato manufacturing plant, needs close to 2.5 million dollars worth of cleanup in order for the company to start building, said Eric Roper of the Star Tribune.
Surly would be building a $20 million brewery that would include the brewery, a restaurant, beer garden and event center, Roper said.
However, the company has not yet committed to the site, said John Vomhof Jr. of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.
"While the 'Malcolm Midway site' is an attractive option for this project, it's not the only option and we continue our due diligence investigation on other site options in Minneapolis and beyond." Surly said in a statement.
