After four years of planning, searching for a location, name changes and renovations, Joaquin “Joe” Baez and his wife, Maryn, opened Lemonstreet Brewing Co. last week in the Rail Yard District, west of Downtown.
Baez signed a lease in March for a 20,000-square-foot building at 2100 Dennis St. With more space than he needed, Baez installed two bocce ball courts, dart boards, several seating areas and a projector for eventual media use. Baez invested $1.1 million to start the brewery.
The building was a former book bindery, paper manufacturer and warehouse space.
