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. 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

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:

The taproom will also serve Crosstown Brown (a brown ale with “lots of caramel, coffee notes,” Clark says) and Boll Weevil Saison — a Belgian farmhouse ale. One of their 16 taps will serve nitro, cold-brew coffee from French Truck.

The taproom will be open Wednesday through Friday from 4-10 p.m. and from noon to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
