HeadFlyer Brewing is planning a nearly 9,500-square-foot taproom and brewery in the newly overhauled Miller Textile Building in Northeast Minneapolis.

Ackerberg Group, which is renovating the aging warehouse complex on Hennepin Avenue, announced the new tenant Monday. The Minneapolis-based company has been updating the four-story Miller Textile Building for new tenants since last December.

HeadFlyer’s social media pages list this fall or winter for a potential opening.

“We are very excited to bring classic, high-quality crafts beers to the Beltrami neighborhood of Northeast Minneapolis,” said Neil Miller, co-founder and head brewer, in a statement.

The addition of the newly founded brewery brings the project at 861 E. Hennepin Ave. to 61 percent leased, according to a release. The building features approximately 10,000 square feet of retail space and 38,000 of office space.

“Our goal in repositioning this property was to turn it into a signature destination in Northeast Minneapolis. The addition of HeadFlyer will definitely help us achieve that goal,” said CEO Stuart Ackerberg.

Ackerberg recently announced that St. Louis Park-based Stahl Construction plans to relocate its headquarters to the project. Stahl will occupy the entire second floor, more than 15,000 square feet of office space.
