TUPPS Brewery Project

In July 2020, TUPPS Brewery announced it will relocate and expand its campus to the historic Mill District of downtown McKinney. The campus will include a tasting taproom in the original grain milling building, a state-of-the-art production facility, retail shopping featuring local craftsmen, and an entertainment venue. The McKinney Community Development Corporation (MCDC) and the McKinney Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) are contributing to the project.

How will this project benefit the city?

MCDC works in partnership with businesses to promote and fund cultural and economic development projects that maintain and enhance McKinney's quality of life. The TUPPS Brewery relocation and expansion project is an example of great things that come from collaboration and public-private cooperative efforts.


The TUPPS project, which will rehabilitate and revitalize the former McKinney Grain property, will:

  • Accomplish MCDC strategic goals of fostering the redevelopment of the Downtown Historic Cultural District and East McKinney and creating destination retail, dining, and entertainment.
  • Serve as a catalyst for redevelopment on the east side of the city.
  • Create a world-class cultural and entertainment destination for residents and visitors.
  • Facilitate the growth and expansion of TUPPS Brewery.

What is the timeline for this project?

The project is expected to break ground in the first quarter of 2021 and be fully completed by the third quarter of 2022.
