Tree House bought the former Channing Bete headquarters, manufacturing and warehouse space on Route 5 in South Deerfield for $4.25 million.

The brewing company announced back in November that it plans to open a taproom, store, festival and performance space. Some attractions could launch sometime in the summer of 2021, depending on COVID-19 restrictions.

The old Bete property boasts 97,200 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse and office space along with a large solarium that was once an employee cafeteria. It’s right on a major commercial road and right off interstate 91 in a rural area of the state underserved by other COVID clinics.
