Jackson May Get Craft Beer Brewery

Posted: Updated:
Jackson - A craft beer company now based in Gluckstadt has an option to buy a former Greyhound bus service building in Jackson for its own brewery.
    
Lucky Town Brewing co-founder Chip Jones tells The Clarion-Ledger that the option is contingent on a zoning variance and use permit from the city.
    
Back Forty Beer Co. in Alabama now brews beer under contract for Lucky Town.
    
Jones says the bus barn's high ceilings are good for microbrewing, because if the company needs to expand it can order taller tanks.
    
His plans call for a microbrewery, a tasting area, a retail area for merchandise such as shirts and glasses, an office area and warehouse space for brewing and inventory.
    
Gluckstadt is about 15 miles from Jackson in Madison County.
