Chris Davis Brings New Microbrewery Over the Bay Bridge

JULY 2017, SALISBURY, MD – SVN | Miller Commercial Real Estate Senior Advisor Chris Davis collaborated with Marley Welsh of Lee and Associates to lease 1118 Main Street in Chester, MD. The 24,000 SF former grocery store will now be home to an up-and-coming microbrewery. Glass Valve Brewing is expected to open its doors in the coming months and will be the area’s largest microbrew location. Chris Davis represented the landlord and Marley Welsh represented the tenant in this deal.

“Recently, SVN Miller Advisors have worked with several local breweries in Wicomico and Worcester counties,” said Davis. “Seeing the positive effect they have had on local economic development solidifies my opinion that Glass Valve Brewing will attract attention from both sides of the Bay Bridge and be an asset to the town of Chester.”
