I thought it might be fun to have a single thread to track the progress of local breweries that are in the planning stage.

Here is a list of breweries I know are currently in the process of becoming a commercial brewery.

List of breweries from Brewer's Association Listing - status PLANNING: http://www.brewersassociation.org/pages ... us-brewery :
- Belton Brewing Co, LLC
- Cinder Block Brewing
- Fountainhead Brewing Company
- Friction Brewing Company
- The Big Rip
- Wilderness Brewing

Also listed:
- Brewery In Planning - Kansas City
- Brewery In Planning - Leawood

Beyond these, also know about:
- Martin City Brewing Company

What other breweries in planning are out there? Anyone have status on any of these?

Cheers,

Tim

Yeah, good idea, man.

Green Room in Westport is supposedly planning on brewing on-premises at some point as well. No real information on that yet, though.

Plan B, Stuck Truck, Fountainhead, Dead Canary (I kid, I kid)

Green Room has state and federal licensing done which puts them furthest along, I believe.

I also believe this is the case. If you look at their menu, they have it listed. I can't remember what they're calling it though.

I think this thread is a great idea. Would also be nice to see the locations of each (town at least) and maybe the latest progress report, if any. There are some on the list that I haven't heard of.

Super great thread once again guys. Great idea.
I am excited about the prospects presented all the breweries working on opening.
I am very jealous of st Louis, perennial, 2nd shift, four hands, and urban chestnut and the local fresh options they present that city. Consequently that mccoys fest looks amazing, wish I could go....
So whose beer do you think we'll get to drink first, second, and so on....
Green Room, then who?
