Company Galldachd na h-Alba, also known as Lowland Brewing, are converting the former Wilson and Gilston painters and decorators site on Well Street into a brewery.
And they are set to launch this summer with flagship beers, Dryfe Blonde and Dryfe Ale, to hit local pubs and hotels.
Lowland’s Tom Barr said: “The building on Well Street is undergoing extensive renovations after receiving approval of the plans from the council.
“Once it is fully renovated there will be a large downstairs brewing room and an office and storage space upstairs.”
He explained that the first brews will be sent for bottling in Stirling and will then be available at smaller establishments and trade shows and markets.
Moffat based Chefs In Scotland are the majority shareholder in the brewery.
Shares of the brewery were up for grabs at £500 each and so far almost £20,000 has been raised.
Tom said: “As the brewery gets established there will be new employment opportunities in the region which will be a boost as jobs are lost at places such as Pinneys in Annan.”
