A name and new details about Frisco’s first brewery have been revealed.

Frisco Brewing Company will open in 2023 at 6601 Frisco Square Blvd., said a press release from Nack Development. The new brewery will serve a variety of craft beers, sodas and cocktails.

The 16,000 square foot facility will house the brewery as well as a restaurant, bakery and butcher shop. Additionally, a large 14,000 square foot outdoor entertainment patio will host events and live music. Construction is expected to begin early this year, the statement said.

“From the moment we set out to reimagine what was possible in The Rail District, we had in mind a very specific type of business to join the creative mix we are preparing,” said Donny Churchman, President and Owner of Nack. Development, in Liberation. “We love a good star, and Frisco Brewing Company has a certain creative, thoughtful, unconventional edge.”

Frisco Brewing Company will also aim to practice sustainable brewing with a system that will reduce grain wastage. A “draff initiative” will use all aspects of the grains used to brew beer in the restaurant. In addition, the spent grain will be used to feed the cattle which will supply the butcher’s shop on site, and as bread for the bakery.

“Our process is designed to give spent grains more life,” said Chad Dolezal, food and beverage manager for Frisco Brewing Company. “We will use it to feed the cattle that will supply our on-site butcher shop and grind it to be used as a base for the fresh breads coming out of our bakery.”

On January 25, the Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission removed the zoning requirement for residential spaces that are part of the property. Churchman said Nack Development is awaiting approval from the Frisco City Council on March 1.
