(Clinton, IA) -- Clinton is expecting its new and only brewery downtown.
Great Revivalist Brew Lab in Geneseo is coming to Clinton after buying two historic Bethel African Methodist Episcopal churches to convert into a restaurant and brewery.
This will be the city’s first and only brewery since the previous one closed over a decade ago.
The city has been working recently to bring businesses into vacant buildings and revitalize downtown.
By purchasing the churches, Great Revivalist is saving it from being demolished.
Great Revivalist plans on preserving stained glass windows, keeping the original tile fresco, and repurposing wood from pews.
