A facade appeal was approved for Franconia Brewing Co.’s new tap room and beer garden during a McKinney Planning and Zoning meeting July 10.

The 1,760-square-foot tap room and beer garden, which will be located at 495 McKinney Parkway, will be a two-story building made from eight shipping containers. There will also be an outdoor seating area and room for food trucks, according to a letter of intent.

Brewmaster and co-owner Dennis Wehrmann said the brewery would like to expand in honor of Franconia’s 10-year anniversary.

The tap room and beer garden were designed by Conduit Architecture + Design.

“Franconia has a vision of doing something different,” Principal Architect Kobey Seale said at the meeting.

Wehrmann and Seale said the facade fits into the industrial area of the city but will also serve as an attraction to the brewery.
