The venture now confirmed to be in the historic building that for years housed Stokes Restaurant and Bar. What's more, it appears CLM is looking to move into Cannery Row. Details are sketchy, and tied to leaked information, but it appears the project will be called the Cannery Row Brewing Co., taking over in the old O'Kane's Warehouse building that just saw the demise of Willy's Smokehouse.
