Microbrewery to open in Myrtle Beach’s new arts & innovation district

Grand Strand Brewing Company will open a new microbrewery in a historic downtown building that’s part of Myrtle Beach’s new arts and innovation district, the city announced Friday.

The brewery team has more than two decades experience in the beer industry, and plans to produce a variety of handmade beers in the downstairs taproom at 819 North Kings Highway in Nance Plaza, the city said in a statement.

The city council plans to discuss the building sale at its Oct. 8 meeting.

The upstairs will be occupied by The Maker Exchange, and transformed into a creative space for community events and art classes, plus conference rooms and a prep kitchen.

The Maker Exchange will be owned and operated by Lauren Riddei, an interior designer, and Kendall Seagroves, a graphic designer.

 “We are excited to welcome our next two entrepreneurs to the Arts & Innovation District,” Mayor Brenda Bethune said.  

“With a new master plan and new zoning in place, we hope to have many more announcements about downtown revitalization in the months ahead,” Bethune said.
