Cottontown Brew Lab, 1223 Franklin Street: April 2021   2 comments

Posted at 11:41 pm in closing








I was unfamiliar with this micro-brewery off of North Main until commenter Alan noted its (apparent) passing.

According to The State:

The owner of Cottontown Brew Lab announced in April on Facebook that the neighborhood microbrewery would be closing temporarily for renovations.

In his post, owner Zack Jones said, “the operational costs of trying to build a regionally distributed brewery without the financial support of a proper tap room have meant that we rarely met operating costs.”

I'm not entirely sure of the context there but I think it means that their indoor operation was closed during the pandemic. The same article mentions that they hope to re-open as "a higher quality, indoor dining experience", but I did not notice any signs of construction as I drove past.

  1. I frequented Cottontown and they had some of the best beers in town. Their indoor tasting room was never completed (not really related to Covid) so the only option for beer was togo or their outside area, which is behind the wooden fence shown in the pictures. When there was bad weather, they'd have to close completely. I really do hope they find a way to reopen as their a great local spot for those that live in the neighborhoods nearby.

  2. Their beers were not great and they had no indoor seating.
