Evolution Craft Brewing Company Public House Receives A 2013 MEDA Award

MAY 2013, SALISBURY, MD – The Maryland Economic Development Association (MEDA) recently awarded Evolution Craft Brewing Company Public House with a 2013 Economic Development Project Award for their restaurant and brewery at 200 Elmwood Street, the former Ice Plant in Salisbury, MD. The MEDA Awards recognize outstanding efforts to attract new businesses, assist existing businesses, redevelop business districts, and support workforce development, tourism and agriculture.

Brent, Miller, CCIM, CPM, Managing Director and Senior Advisor with Sperry Van Ness – Miller Commercial Real Estate in Salisbury, MD was instrumental in the redevelopment of this building to suit the needs of Evolution Public House. Miller was the leasing agent and Managing Partner for the vacant ice plant and was aware that it would take a unique tenant to fill the space due to the refrigeration system and insulated walls. Within twelve months of approaching John and Tom Knorr, The Evolution Public House was up and running, including executing a long term lease and completing construction.  Miller stated, “Due to the success of Evolution Public House in the former Ice Plant, tourism has gone through the roof with brewery tours. It’s a win win for the city, county, and state.”
