Bell’s Brewery looking to Escanaba

The founder of a Lower Peninsula brewery is trying to buy land in Escanaba so that he can build a manufacturing plant there.

The website says it’s Larry Bell of Bell’s Brewery.

The Escanaba City Council is holding a special meeting about his proposal on Thursday.

According to mLive, Bell has offered to buy about three acres of land at the Whitetale Industrial Park for $35,000.

The brewery manufacturing plant would employ five people if it were built, and it would require 18 months of construction.

The city is recommending approval of the sale.

If the City Council gives the OK, the development will come before the Escanaba Planning Commission.

Bell’s Brewery is based in Kalamazoo.
