Hinterland Brewery celebrates groundbreaking in Titletown District
GREEN BAY (WLUK) —
With some cheers and a few beers, crews officially broke ground for the Hinterland Brewery, one of the three main anchors of the Titletown District.
Owner Bill Tressler held back tears as he spoke about this special day and how he got here.
"It seems crazy," Tressler said. "We started this process just talking loosely maybe like four years ago."
The restaurant and brewery is the second project underway in the district. Work on the 144-room luxury hotel Lodge Kohler started in April. The $130 million dollar Titletown development just west of Lambeau Field, will also include a Bellin Health Sports Medicine Clinic and a public plaza.
"It's like unbelievable right?" Tressler said. "The best view in the world as far as I'm concerned, if you're from Green Bay it's the best view in the world. It's the best location you could ever ask for."One of three main anchors in the Titletown District held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday.
"Really happy for them," said Packers President Mark Murphy. "They had kind of outgrown their space in Green Bay and have really built up such a great establishment and one of the best restaurants in the area."
Murphy says Hinterland will have a unique role in Titletown.
"Unlike some of the other aspects of Titletown that will bring people from outside the community, this will have some of that but I also think this will be a great place for people in the local community to come out and spend some time," Murphy said.
Tressler says as for business, the future is pretty bright.
"The national spotlight shines on Green Bay a few times a year it's nice to be in the background of that," Tressler said.
Construction will continue through the football season. Tressler says the building should be completed by March 2017. Hinterland's location in the Titletown District should be open for business sometime in April.
