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. 

The brewery would take over the entire bottom portion of the arena, according to the plan. 

"There will never be another concert in the Mid-South Coliseum again. No graduations," Smith said. 

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