The Phoenix Brewing Company
Founded by local beer enthusiasts looking to bring a craft beer revival to Mansfield, The Phoenix Brewing Company is located in the former 1914 Schroer Mortuary in downtown Mansfield’s Carrousel District. The brewery boasts schoolhouse style light fixtures reclaimed from the former Allstate building on Main St. in downtown Mansfield, tables made from cut up bowling alley sections of the former King Lanes in Ashland and original metal window frames found on the main floor which were meticulously dismantled and restored. The brewing is done in the basement which was where the embalming/prep was done. The building also had a hand drawn casket elevator to take caskets to all three floors- the prep area, chapel and viewing area which the brewery used parts of to make coffin shaped sample glass holders.
Sip four beer samples with a tour of the Phoenix, $10 p/p.
