FLINT, MI — The state has approved a license for what could be first microbrewery, planned for a shuttered Flint fire station near downtown.Despite the green light for the project, the Rev. Patrick McNeal, pastor at Living Grace Community Fellowship and My Brother’s Keeper, said his congregation will pray that the brewery fails even before it opens its doors.”We are praying that it closes,” McNeal said. “Is this the right place to do this? Absolutely not.”MLive-The Flint Journal could not immediately reach Jason Caya, a representative of Tenacity Brewing, for comment on the status of the business or its timeline for producing beer.
The former Market Fire Station on Grand Traverse Street, pictured on Feb. 20, 2014, is undergoing renovations for new microbrewery.
