Downtown North Tonawanda will soon have two huge additions open on Webster Street: the opening of Nano Brewery and the transformation of the former NT History Museum to a Spot Coffee.

In fact, Spot Coffee is not the only addition that we be filling the space formerly occupied by the history museum as there will be. It is said that numerous tenants will also occupy the space along with Spot Coffee which will act as its anchor. The building as a whole will be called “DestiantioNT.”

As reported during the summer, Real estate developer and investor Ralph Dailey bought the building at an auction in July for about $499,000.

The North Tonawanda History Museum which had previously occupied the spot went through foreclosure after falling behind on mortgage payments. As detailed by the Niagara Reporter previously, the museum has since moved to 712 Oliver Street.

The second major addition to Webster Street, Prosper Brewing, is just about ready to open up shop. Despite continuing to await their liquor license to arrive, owners Timothy Berg and Kevin Whipple say that they are excited to share their passions for brewing with North Tonawanda residents.

Of the many special things Prosper will offer, they will brew and serve such beers as porter, stout, blonde ale, orange pale ale, Vienna lager, Munich Dunkel and maybe a sour Berliner Weisse.



The brewery fills the former Hodgepodge Gift Shop which then flirted with being an Uncorked wine bar.

Overall, Prosper will have twelve taps. Two of which owners are hopeful with be for reserve hard ciders.

Prosper will also have a tasting room which will seat forty people. A neat detail about this room is that it sits with the brewing tanks in full view. There will also be a small menu of which people can order food.

The brewery is named after a French immigrant, Prosper Peuquet, who was a brewmaster in the Tonawandas more than two hundred years ago.

Some of the changes you will see inside the brewery are tin ceilings, tongue-and-groove walls and subway tile.
