Manchester could be getting a microbrewery

Cody Morgan and Ludomir Wanot are co-founders of the aptly-named Manchester Brewing Co. Morgan, an avid homebrewer, is developing the beer lineup.

Wanot said codes in Manchester require them to open a restaurant before they begin selling beer. They plan to install the brewery on the ground floor of the building and open the restaurant upstairs.

The duo have an investor lined up for the project and plan to launch a Kickstarter campaign soon.

Wanot said Manchester is a growing hub that seems primed for more business development.

“I think it will be a really nice crowd,” he said. “It’s a great area.”

Kitsap’s brewery scene is buzzing this year. Silver City, Slaughter County and Sound are all in the midst of major expansions. Two breweries are under construction in Bremerton, and another is planned in Silverdale.
