One entrepreneur's dream to create a banquet and entertainment venue
along the lakeshore has finally become reality. Live music, a
microbrewery and space to seat hundreds could be the right recipe.
According to excerpts from the story:
SAUGATUCK TOWNSHIP -- After two years
and $1 million in construction, the final phase of Barry Johnson's
dream for the Saugatuck Brewing Company Inc. is becoming reality. On
Friday, the brewery is expected to open its new 10,000-square-foot Bier
Hall, a banquet and entertainment facility with capacity for up to 360
"Now, it's complete. We have the Saugatuck Brewery,
the Lucky Stone Pub and the Bier Hall all open under one roof," said
Johnson, the company's president and founder who relocated the brewery
to a 25,000-square-foot building at 2948 Blue Star Highway last summer.
He plans to have the Bier Hall available for weddings and other events,
"Saugatuck is a wedding
destination in the summer and there are only a few places to hold a
large reception. And now there is one more," Johnson said.
