Watermark Brewing Co. gets approval to help it move forward

The Watermark Brewing Co. in Stevensville plans to open in May, 2016 and it just got a financial boost for the processing portion of its brewing facility.

Watermark Brewing Co. plans to brew and serve craft beers, including IPAs, sour barrel-aged beers, Belgian-style brew, and others. Its initial investment for the business is $530,000 and will create 15 jobs. 

Construction is now underway on Watermark's 5,200-square-foot building, which will house the brewing area as well as the tasting section where patrons can enjoy crafted beers.

The Stevensville Village Council recently approved a 12-year tax abatement of the brewery's $205,500 investment in the processing portion of their brewery at 5781 St. Joseph Ave.

"This approval from the Stevensville Village Council puts us that much closer to opening the Watermark Brewing Company," says Chris Mason, CEO of Watermark Brewing Company.

Cathy Tilley, Business Development Manager from Cornerstone Alliance, says her organization has been working with Watermark Brewing Co. since 2015 on the new brewery. "It’s great to see their plans come to fruition."
