Wire Road Brewing Company has announced plans to break ground on a new 3,500 square foot microbrewery in the city of Battlefield, near Springfield, Missouri.
“This is an exciting day for our team, as we begin the process of bringing such a unique experience for all Springfieldians to the Battlefield area,” said Co-Owner and Partner, Jeff Birchler. “We are excited to move forward with a project that will enhance the craft brewery culture of Springfield and capitalize on the culture and outdoors of the Ozarks.”
Wire Road Brewing Company chose Battlefield due to its recent population and economic growth.
“Battlefield checked all the boxes and made perfect sense for a place like Wire Road,” said Co-Owner and Partner, Deanna Walker. “A supportive city administration, successful existing businesses, and potential for growth made our choice to bring a brewery to the area an easy one. We look forward to serving this community and the surrounding area for a long time.”
Home to 90+ breweries, in addition to 130+ wineries and 20+ distilleries, Missouri’s alcohol industry has entered a new golden age. Most people know about Missouri-based Anheuser-Busch, but Missouri is also becoming known for its craft beer production. Companies like Boulevard Brewing Co., Urban Chestnut, and Mother’s Brewing Company are producing hundreds of thousands of barrels of craft beer each year.
