Big Storm Increases Hand Sanitizer Production to 1,000 Gallons a Day

CLEARWATER, Fla. – To help meet the skyrocketing need for hand sanitizer due to the spread of coronavirus, Big Storm Brewing Co. is boosting production of liquid sanitizer spray to 1,000 gallons per day. The company is already operating 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, but has been able to increase its production by adding more processing tanks.

“Increasing production allows us to continue supplying law enforcement agencies, medical offices, government agencies, construction companies and other essential businesses that have reached out to us,” said Big Storm co-owner L.J. Govoni. “But we also hope to soon begin selling to the public at all three of our taprooms.”

Big Storm, which plans to add an additional 9,000-gallon tank for production, has been making hand sanitizer since receiving federal approval to manufacture ethanol earlier this month.
