Springfield Brewing Company (known by many simply as the “BrewCo” or “SBC”) has been in the business of brewing world class beers since 1997. Our story began when the Paul Mueller Company purchased the original building to create a showcase for their stainless-steel brewery tanks. In so doing, the landscape of downtown Springfield was changed forever. Their goal was to provide the 417 community with a unique brewpub experience, combining locally crafted beer with great food.
Nearly 24 years later, the SBC phenomenon has evolved into the next level – now known as SBC’s Campus! Still 100% locally-owned, we strive to provide the entire 417 area a truly unique experience that isn’t replicated anywhere else. It’s true we’ve become known for our world class beers and food, but now, the SBC Campus includes our very own onsite distillery (Ty Iechyd Da) and live music venue (SBC’s The Cellar). Through uniquely crafted Ty Iechyd Da cocktails, eclectic ambitious food, and live music, we are able to give our community a full sensory experience!
The entire team at SBC is devoted to providing Springfield with a truly unique destination – and we’ve succeeded – it’s unlike anything you can find in the entire U.S. And it’s all right here, on a small corner of downtown Springfield, Missouri!
Our two-story building, at the 300 block of Market Street in Downtown Springfield, was built in 1910 by Job Newton, a prominent local business man, who occupied it until 1924 as the Newton Grain Company. In 1924, Job retired and sold the business to the Greene County Farmers Sales Association who resided in the building until 1964. After 1964, the building was leased and sold a number of times with one of the businesses being an electronic repair company.
In February 1997 the Paul Mueller Company purchased the building, renovated it with the help of BRP Architecture, and opened it on December 19, 1997 under the name – Springfield Brewing Company. In 2011, a group of local investors and craft beer lovers purchased the building from Mueller and own and operate it today!
