ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) -- Craft beer is exploding in popularity in St. Louis and around the country.

Now some former Anheuser-Busch executives are hoping to cash in on the craft craze.

Think of this as an incubator for budding breweries.

The business is called Brew Hub and it was born here in St. Louis.

An artist's rendering shows what the first Brew Hub will look like in Lakeland, Florida, near Orlando.

The idea is simple: Brew Hub provides the space, equipment, capital and brewing expertise to take a craft brew to the next level.

The craft brewers bring the recipes.

The Florida Brew Hub will open later this year, with four more planned for other parts of the country.
