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.

Spotlight: Crispy's Springfield Gallery

In 2014, BMorCreative teamed up with Springfield-resident and restaurateur John Crispens to bring his dream of a local eatery to life. Crispens was in search of a unique venue he could transform into a local hotspot, and found the perfect opportunity on Main Street. The former Akra Bros Department Store - a gem of Main Street in the 1930s - was up for grabs from it's recent pawn shop occupant. Although commercial development on Main Street was sparse, Crispens recognized the potential in restoring the structure and pumping new lifeblood into the community. He engaged fellow Springfield resident Becky Morgan and the design team at BMorCreative to help fulfill his vision, and the team was off and running.

Restoring a historic building is no small undertaking; on top of aesthetic appeal and modern amenities, restoration specialists must consider state and local preservation laws. We helped Crispens and his architectural team with the extensive design and planning required to bring th…

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…
