Crosstown Brewing Company, co-founded by Will Goodwin and Clark Ortkiese, will include a brewery and a taproom located just west of the Crosstown Concourse in a freestanding building. It is scheduled to open by Thanksgiving of this year. This building will have a plethora of windows, natural light, and a canning operation onsite.

“Traffic” West Coast-Style IPA. Big, bold hoppy IPA with bright tropical and citrus flavors, balanced by malt character.

“Siren” Blonde Ale. Understated and subtle. A beer that can go anywhere.

“Having spent so much time in the Crosstown neighborhood, we’ve become very familiar with the sights and sounds of our home. Cleveland Street is very busy, and the 42 is one of the busiest bus routes in the city. The roar of traffic and the drone of sirens are the ambient noises when you’re at the brewery.” – Clark Ortkiese

Crosstown Brewing Company will have 10 distinct beers available in the taproom at any given time.

All graphics and designs for the new beers were made by Tom Martin Design who originally created the Crosstown Brewing Company brand. The new brewery and taproom are designed by Hunter Fleming of Facture Design. See some of the progress below:
