After announcing a sudden closure earlier this month, Mill Creek Brewing Co. is starting up operations again in Nolensville.

The brewery announced Nov. 25 it resumed production and is working to restock products at retailers in the area. Mill Creek cited financial issues as the reason for the closure but has now reached a deal with an unnamed partner to provide funding to reopen.

“Shortly after announcing the news a few weeks back, we were approached by a new a partner," CEO Chris Going said in a release. "A deal came together rather quickly with a quick infusion of capital. We’re thrilled to be back to work, pumping out Mill Creek beers and positioning ourselves to keep the taps flowing and the shelves stocked in the marketplace.”

Mill Creek's full-time employees have already returned to work, and the company will undergo financial restructuring, according to the release.

The brewery is expected to reopen its Nolensville taproom in the coming weeks, according to the release. It is not yet clear whether the brewery's taprooms in Franklin and 12 South will reopen, according to a company spokesperson.
