Mantra Artisan Ales moving out of Franklin, Mill Creek Brewing Co. to open taproom in its place

Nolensville-based brewery Mill Creek Brewing Co. will move into its newest taproom and brewery in Franklin in the coming weeks, taking over Mantra Artisan Ales' location at 216 Noah Drive, Franklin, according to an Aug. 20 release from the company.

"This opportunity is a great example of the growth the brewing industry across Middle-TN is experiencing," Mill Creek CEO Chris Going said in a statement. "We've been eyeing Franklin as a potential expansion location for the past few years and the opportunity to take over this space, continue the beer legacy started there, and become a new partner to the Franklin community all are exciting pieces of this win-win situation for both our companies.

It will be Mill Creek's third taproom, and its first in Franklin. The others are located in Nolensville and the 12 South neighborhood in Nashville, respectively. Mantra is expected to close Sept. 1, however an opening date for Mill Creek's new taproom has not yet been determined, according to the company.

Mantra is moving to an 83-acre facility in Murfreesboro after almost four years in its current location, the release said.

"The time is right with our new facility in Murfreesboro to go all in on our brand new Beer Park,” Mantra COO and Brewmaster Derrick Morse said in the release. “The Franklin location has served us well and we will always have our roots in Franklin, but we have outgrown the physical space and are ready to embrace that growth and keep moving into the future.”
