MEMPHIS, TN - A brewery is planning a $49 million upgrade in Tennessee that it says will add 155 jobs. According to the Daily Memphian, Blues City Brewery in Memphis is one of three U.S. contract-brewing facilities operated by Wisconsin-based City Brewing Company. The company is seeking a local property tax break worth $3.7 million over 12 years. The Economic Growth Engine for Memphis & Shelby County says the operation will generate $10 million in property tax over the 12-year time frame. The facility currently employs 516 people making an average of $54,000 annually. City Brewing bought the plant nine years ago.
