A name and new details on the first brewery in Frisco have been revealed.
Frisco Brewing Company will open in 2023 at 6601 Frisco Square Blvd., a news release from Nack Development stated. The new brewery will serve a variety of craft beers, seltzers and cocktails.
The 16,000-square-foot facility will be home to the brewery as well as a restaurant, bakery and butcher shop. In addition, a large 14,000-square-foot outdoor entertainment patio will host events and live music. Construction is set to begin early this year, the release stated.
“From the moment we set out to reimagine what was possible in The Rail District, we had a very specific type of business in mind to join the creative mix we are curating, “ said Donny Churchman, president and owner of Nack Development, in the release. “We love a good standout, and Frisco Brewing Company has a certain creative, thoughtful and unconventional edge.”
Frisco Brewing Company will also aim to practice sustainable brewing with a system that will reduce grain waste. A "spent grain initiative" will utilize all aspects of grains used to brew beer within the restaurant. In addition, spent grain will be used to feed cattle that will supply the on-site butcher shop, and within breads in the bakery.
“Our process is designed to get more life out of the spent grain,” said Chad Dolezal, Frisco Brewing Company’s food and beverage director. “We will be using it to feed the cattle that will supply our on-site butcher shop and grinding it down to be used as the basis for the fresh baked breads coming out of our bakery.”
The Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission on Jan. 25 removed the zoning requirement for residential spaces as part of the property. Churchman said that Nack Development is awaiting approval from Frisco City Council on March 1.
