Wiseacre co-founder Frank Smith appeared before the City Council today to discuss moving the brewery's operation into the Mid-South Coliseum. 

He said he wanted to "explore if the idea has merit."

Wiseacre, Smith said, has expanded its Broad facility four times in the last two years and has reached capacity.

He did envision partnering with area restaurants. He also threw out the ideas of a bowling alley or climbing wall.
