The 25-foot by 50-foot addition is intended to provide more brewing and dining space. The outdoor patio will have a retractable awning, said Murphy Constructors Vice President Kevin Murphy, who is working on the project.

The Phantom Canyon project is one of two brewery projects that Murphy Constructors is working on. The contractor is also renovating the Ivywild Elementary School for Bristol Brewing. That project is expected to be finished by mid-September.

“I guess we’re getting into the brewing business,” Murphy said.

The Phantom Canyon addition will incorporate a similar architectural style that will blend with the historic building, but will not match it completely, Murphy said.

Work is expected to be complete by October.
