New brewery in Biloxi hopes to be local economic anchor
The finishing touches are being put on a large brewery and tap room set to open in Downtown Biloxi next week.
Fly Llama Brewing will be located at 186 Bohn Street in close proximity to MGM Park and Beau Rivage.
Brewmaster David Reese hopes the 10-barrel brewhouse and canning line can bring a few more jobs to the local area and be an anchor for downtown.
Reese says opening a new business during a pandemic brings its challenges, but with safety measures in place he hopes it can provide local residents with an escape from all the stress. “We’ll persevere. The world’s ready for it. We need beer right now, more than ever, so it wouldn’t be my first choice of a time to open, but I’m not worried. We’re going to be ok.”
Fly Llama Brewing’s grand opening is set for January 14th at 4 p.m.
