Looking to make Scott’s Addition its forever home, a popular watering hole now owns its own facility.

Ardent Craft Ales last month purchased its nearly 26,000-square-foot brewery at 3200 W. Leigh St. for about $1.4 million, confirmed co-owner and director of operations Tom Sullivan. The brewery opened there in 2014 and has been leasing it from local developer and landlord Scott Coleman of Crossroads Development.
