Kannah Creek Brewing Co. expects to hire about 50 employees for the Fruita operation and is accepting applcations at its location at 1960 N. 12th St. in Grand Junction.

“The Western Slope community is phenomenal, and we’re excited to share our Colorado product with Fruita,” said Shane Dixon, operations manager for Kannah Creek Brewing Co. “Everyone has already been so welcoming that we can’t wait to get our doors open to meet more of the Fruita community.”

Kannah Creek opened in 2005 in a building that previously housed a buffet restaurant. Kannah Creek initially operated a brewpub and restaurant. The operation subsequently expanded when the Edgewater Brewery opened in 2013 along the Riverside Parkway south of downtown Grand Junction. The facility bottles beers distributed thoughout Colorado and also includes a restaurant.
