Brewery Deal Closes

Members of Butler Snow’s Business Services Group represented Chism Hardy Enterprises LLC in the sale of the former Memphis Coors Brewery to City Brewing Co. in a $30 million transaction. The closing was announced by Hardy Bottling Co. CEO and founder Carolyn Hardy and clears the way for the buyer to work toward beginning production in July. The Wisconsin-based company will invest $11 million in restoring full production to the plant, which will employ as many as 500 workers within five years.
