According to azcentral, the new brewery will open in the same brewery and restaurant spaces that Phoenix Ale currently owns and operates.

A group of local real estate developers purchased Phoenix Ale Brewery’s locations and equipment. The new owners include Carl Perrone, Buzz Gosnell, Niels Kreipke and Chris Rose.

Though the exact timeline for the change is unclear, PHX Beer Co. will take over Phoenix Ale Brewery’s production space at 3002 E. Washington St. and the Central Kitchen restaurant at 5813 N. 7th St.

The new owners also plan to open a third location in north Scottsdale.

Adam Wojcik, an Arizona native and 17-year veteran of the beer industry, will lead the new PHX Beer Co. team as its brewery director. He served previously as the national account director at Lagunitas Brewing Company.
