Motorworks Brewing, Bradenton’s first craft brewery, was co-founded by Frank and Denise
Tschida. As soon as they laid their eyes on the Bradenton property, they knew they had found
something special. Home to a Hudson Motors dealership – renowned for outstanding
performance and innovative styling – in the late 40s and early 50s, the building’s automotive
history, along with Frank’s Sprint Car/ASA background, inspired the Motorworks Brewing name.
The Motorworks Brewing team strives to bring their own imaginative and innovative approach to
brewing craft beer to honor their building’s storied past.
