If you’re a follower of Tap List, you may recall a few weeks ago when we reported on the new Station 7 concept in Lake Lotawana by Martin City Brewing Co.
It turns out the brewery is at it again.
Martin City recently announced yet another expansion effort. They will be opening a brand new location in the Lenexa City Center. This will be their second Kansas location, following Mission Farms in Leawood.
The new location will feature a large dining area, outdoor patio, plenty of parking and a space that can be rented out for private events. Just like at their other locations, this location will serve plenty of beer and delicious pizzas.
The location will be at 8802 Renner Road. They plan to be open every single day 11 a.m. – 11p.m. with the potential for expanded hours on Friday and Saturday.
