With a passion for craft beer fine-tuned right here on Florida’s west coast, MOTORWORKS BREWING co-founders Frank and Denise Tschida knew they had found the perfect location for their brewery the moment they saw the Bradenton property.
Located on 9th Street West, mid-way between the downtown Riverwalk Park and the recently renovated McKechnie Field (spring training stadium for the Pittsburgh Pirates and home of the Bradenton Marauders), the brewery is adjacent to Bradenton’s unique Village of the Arts and at the heart of Bradenton’s expanding downtown entertainment corridor.
Built in the mid 1920s as an automobile dealership – complete with a concrete ramp that was used to move cars from the ground floor to a 2nd floor service area – the 27,000+ sq. ft. building houses their full-production brewery and taproom.
The building’s automotive history captured the interest of the brewery team and, ultimately inspired our name: MOTORWORKS BREWING. Reportedly home to a Hudson Motors dealership in the late 40s and early 50s, Hudson was renowned for outstanding performance and innovative styling. The Tschida’s intend to bring their own imaginative and innovative approach to brewing craft beer to life in honor of their building’s storied past.
City Beverages is happy to distribute the following brands: Roll Cage Red Ale, Indy IPA and Cruise Kolsch
