Auburn site among candidates for Prison City’s new brewery

One possible location of Prison City Pub & Brewery’s long-awaited expansion has been identified.

The Auburn brewpub’s owners, Dawn and Marc Schulz, have applied to the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals for a use variance at 4022 Technology Park Blvd., according to a legal notice posted by the city. The variance would allow for the production of beer and the operation of a tasting room at the site.

The board will hear the Schulzes’ application at its next meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24, at Memorial City Hall.

However, the Prison City owners are still looking at other locations for the brewery’s new production facility, Dawn Schulz said in an email. If they decide on one of those prior to the meeting, she continued, they will pull their variance application for the Technology Park site. The decision will be made within the next few weeks, she added.

According to Cayuga County property records, 4022 Technology Park Blvd. is owned by Florida-based interior design firm Lexi Interiors. The property is four acres and the building there is about 37,000 square feet. The property’s 2018 assessment value was $996,000.
