Ellison Brewery to Open in Reo Town this Winter

Ellison 4

Lansing, MI – Mayor Andy Schor today announces that Ellison Brewery has plans to open in REO Town later this year. The brewery will be moving into the QD building located at 1314 S. Washington Ave. Rich with history, the building turned 100 years old in 2017 and is the last Diamond REO building left standing in the city. Ellison plans to incorporate the history of R.E. Olds, REO Town and Diamond REO into the design of both the interior and exterior.


“We are thrilled to welcome Ellison Brewery to REO Town! This great brewery is a perfect addition to this growing corridor. We are excited to see REO Town expand further south on Washington Avenue and believe this is the next big step for this major business corridor and for this neighborhood,” said Mayor Andy Schor.


The brewery will include a full kitchen offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, brunch and snacks, a 1st floor pub and patio and a 2nd floor special event space available for various events. There will be indoor and outdoor games for entertainment. The brewery will include production, barrel aging and packaging of Ellison Beer, with plans for future bottle and can releases.


“Ellison is excited to be a part of the REO Town development and to bring another dynamic venue for Lansing to enjoy,” said Ellison Brewery Owner Aaron Hanson.


Ellison was recently rated as one of the Top 50 Fastest Growing Breweries in the United States, one of only two from Michigan.


Ellison’s new location is expected to open in winter of 2018.
