Within six months, it will be hard to remember Ill Mannered Brewing Co.’s current taproom, with fewer than 10 spots at the bar and a few tables inside and out for customers.

Members of the ThisWeek staff stopped by Ill Mannered Brewing Co., 30 Grace Drive, Powell, on Thursday for week 6 of our #ThisWeekBreweryTour.

And we got there just in time: Ill Mannered is breaking ground on a new 3,000-square-foot building this Wednesday, Feb. 28.

The new space will also include a 1,000-square-foot patio, said Ill Mannered Brewing Co. co-owner Tom Ayers. The building is scheduled to be under construction until July or August, he said.

The new space will allow many more customers enjoy the Powell-based brewery’s specialty brews as well as increase the brewhouse, Ayers said.

In addition, the patio will include a dedicated spot for food trucks, he said.

Until then, Ayers and his team still are experimenting with different flavors for their beer. On Wednesday, Feb. 21, the brewery released their latest creation: “This Be Madness Dopplebock,” a drink with caramel and malt notes and an 8.5-percent alcohol level, Ayers said.
