While City Council will meet tonight to discuss several items, a few of the most exciting for Downtown Harrisonburg involve special use applications for a brewery and a jewelry manufacturer at the Ice House.
The brewery, which will be led by Tim Brady, plans to open a 9,000 square foot facility within the property and will offer a full tasting room, a production house, and a bottling plant for distribution. The space will also feature live music and an indoor/outdoor vibe with over-sized windows and over-sized patio area for patrons.
The jewelry manufacturing area and retail portion will be led by Hugo Kohl who has achieved international acclaim for his one of a kind pieces. Customers and tourists throughout the Valley will be able to manually create their own pieces by using Hugo’s antique equipment and templates for a truly hands-on experience. This 5,000 square foot facility will offer a 100% authentic and creative environment for customers throughout the region.
Here at Matchbox, we are thrilled to be on tonight’s agenda and cannot wait to bring these fantastic attractions to downtown!
