When the Granville Fire Department built their new station last year at 500 S. Main Street, the old station immediately became a hot commodity. Several businesses, both local and from out-of-town, put in proposals to buy the property at 133 N. Prospect St. One of them was the Three Tigers Brewery and their sister business, Mai Chau Kitchen. Community support for the Three Tigers bid was overwhelming, leading the Granville City Council to vote 5-0 in their favor. Now, after six years at 140 N. Prospect Street, Three Tigers and Mai Chau are moving directly across the street into the renovated fire station. The new location will nearly triple the available size for the brewery and restaurant with seating for 120 patrons. A patio will provide several dozen more seats. The new 10-bbl. brewing system is in place, and went into production last week. This represents a tripling of their brewing capacity allowing Three Tigers to both support more taps in the taproom and to begin canning operations.

The new taproom is brightly lit with nature light from the fire station garage doors. The brewing operations are viewable through windows in the taproom. The large U-shaped bar seats 25 with 18 taps plus an English beer engine behind the bar. Initially, a number of guest beers wlll be on tap while the new brewing system is catching up. Cask beers will be available Thursday- Saturday. The food menu will be expanded well beyond their Vietnamese fare, to include burgers, chicken, short ribs, and more.

The new facility officially opens Friday, April 1. Soft openings over the past week have been jam packed, reflecting the community support that helped them secure the property.
