Main and Six Brewery plans late October opening (Renderings)

Dennis Espinosa now co-owns Main and Six at 1636 Main St N. with his mother, Cindy Lasky. The building will have about 90 seats and is just under 3,000 square feet, with 900 square feet of brew space. The build out cost about $300,000, not counting the brand-new brewing equipment.

Becky Morgan, an interior designer with BMorCreative, said she drew design inspiration from the signature hexagon paver seen throughout Springfield and that the brewery will feature “a modern take on a nostalgic feeling.” Morgan and many other members of the build out team are Springfield natives.

Paint with a Purpose

Paint and color are one of the least expensive and most impactful ways to customize your space. Color is not simply used to dress up a room. Color is used to shape energy and sway emotions. It can reflect a person’s personality, express individuality, and can a shift a person’s mood. Color can be what helps set your space apart, and make people remember you. And in a world where everyone seems to just want to fit in, we encourage you to stand out!

As designers, we take a thoughtful and precise approach to color choices and it’s all about achieving the desired effect. Did you know that the right colors can actually change the look and feel of your space? Did you know that color can actually change the way you feel? This is not some new agey hype, experts have been studying ‘Color Theory’ since the early 1400s. Color and the way it is applied, are principles considered by Interior Designers, Graphics Designers, Marketing Teams, Product Designers, and Fashion alike.

Space Matters

Designers can make your space look great, but can workplace issues be resolved through design?  The focus on how people respond to and interact with their surroundings is know as Environmental Psychology, and it’s one of my favorite research subjects. I enjoyed taking this course so much that I later returned as an instructor. I found it infinitely rewarding watching my students begin to understand how a designed environment affects people. Teaching them the stuff that makes designers out of decorators; how to design purposeful spaces for learning, healing, gathering, or working.

Technically, each of these functions could take place in the same vanilla box. But the spatial considerations for a yoga studio vary greatly from those of a coffee shop. If you remove the table and chairs from a restaurant and replace it with cubicles - could it serve as an office? Perhaps, but it would suffer functionally, with a good amount of the space dominated by a now irrelevant commercial kitchen and o…

Spotlight: Main & Six Brewery

Main and Six Brewing Company is one of the most welcomed additions to Main Street, in Historic Springfield. It has the style, ambience and upscale nature rarely found in craft brewery taprooms and that was the vision from the start. Co-Owners Cindy Lasky & her son, Dennis Espinosa, (Head Brewer) encountered hurdles from the Zoning Department when they first announced their intentions. But they were certain this place was ‘the one.’ Soon after filing for an exemption, citizens of Springfield rallied and attended the hearings. Neighbors shared their enthusiasm for this type of establishment and cited examples of how breweries sparked transformation in many communities struggling to revitalize. It was huge win for Main and Six, and a victory for Springfield. However, this was just the beginning of all the hard work to be done.


This quaint mid-century block building once housed a dental office, and was later a retail stationery store. Dennis and Cindy scooped up this little gem with…
