Do you like beer? What about pickleball?
Well, you’re in luck: A 12,000-square-foot brewery, taproom and six-court pickleball facility is coming to Florence, the city announced Tuesday.
The Freedom Brewing Company is partnering with The Pickleball Ranch to open on a four-acre parcel of land on Freedom Way directly behind Thomas More Stadium.
“Over 20 years ago, community leaders envisioned the Florence Y’alls site as an entertainment district and the vision is now becoming a reality,” said Florence Mayor Julie Metzger Aubuchon. “This addition to the Florence Y’alls campus will create a unique destination in our community for fans of baseball, craft beer, pickleball and music to create unforgettable memories.”
The facility is expected to open in the spring of 2024, according to a press release.
Freedom Brewing Company Managing Partner Pete Robinson called the facility a “true entertainment district gem and a one-of-a-kind social and lifestyle experience for fans of brewery and craft beer, baseball, pickleball, and live entertainment.”
A groundbreaking is scheduled for Wednesday at 2 p.m. at 7950 Freedom Way in Florence.
