A Manchester business has been awarded a state grant.
Franklin Street Brewing Company has been awarded $25,000 from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s Choose Iowa grant program.
On Monday, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig announced the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship has awarded nearly $250,000 in grants to help thirteen Iowa farmers, businesses and non-profits increase or diversify their agricultural product offerings. The Choose Iowa grant program makes this possible through value-added projects that help Iowans grow their businesses and access new markets.
Franklin Street Brewing Company will use the grant to purchase and install a canning line that will increase their production and purchases of Iowa-grown hops and grains.
The project is estimated to cost around $83,000.
