BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Nearly a year since launching Titusville’s first craft brewery, the founding partners behind Playalinda Brewing Co. have announced plans to build an offsite production brewery and distillery, both co-branded as The Brix Project.

The production brewery will allow the company to fulfill the increasingly high demand for its beer locally, while paving the way to distribute its products across Florida.

The distillery leg of the business will introduce a first-of-its-kind liquor production facility to Brevard County that will specialize in small batch spirits.

Slated to open in 2016, if terms between the project’s partners, Brevard County and the City of Titusville are agreed upon, the production brewery, distillery, tasting room, beer garden and onsite restaurant will occupy 16,000-square-feet at 5220 S. Washington Avenue in Titusville.

Construction and design efforts will be led by RUSH Construction and Eleven 18 Architecture.

The deal calls for the project’s partners to invest $3.65 million for building refurbishment, construction costs, machinery, equipment and furniture.
