Municipal Brew Works to open second location inside Spooky Nook in Hamilton

Municipal Brew Works will open a second Hamilton location inside the coming Spooky Nook Sports Champion Mill indoor sports and convention center facility, officials said today.

The brewery became the first tenant to sign with Spooky Nook, officials said. The $144 million facility, which at 1.3 million square feet is to be the largest indoor sports complex in North America, is scheduled for completion around the end of this year.

“We think this will be a great partnership and provide an entertainment outlet for the many visitors The Nook will bring into Hamilton,” Jim Goodman, owner of Municipal Brew Works, said in a news release.

“Ever since we started the brewery in 2016, it has been our goal to be a welcoming place for people to relax and gather over great beer. We feel this fits well with what Spooky Nook wants to offer their guests and we’re excited to be a part of it”

The location inside Spooky Nook will include a tap room and small batch brewing facility of about 5,000 square feet. It will have seating for more than 100 people, officials said.

The increased space will “allow us to brew more styles of beer as well as beers for special occasions like conventions or house beers for local restaurants,” Goodman said.

We will update this story as we learn more about the plans.
