A Southern Utah-based brewing company has received approval to open up a new brewery and pub in downtown St. George.
During a public meeting Thursday evening, the St. George City Council unanimously approved an application by Zion Brewing Company for a conditional use permit to convert the now-vacant Fire Station 2 at 150 N. Main Street into a brewery.

The city is going to sell the building to Zion Brewing proprietor Brooks Pace, St. George Communications Director David Cordero said.
The fire station had recently become defunct, and equipment and personnel were moved to more modern facilities. Plans are in place to build a new fire station elsewhere to replace it.
