Earth Rider Brewery Expands Brewing Capacity

SUPERIOR, Wis. — Earth Rider Brewery is expanding its production capacity to keep pace with demand for their beer. On Tuesday, April 24 at 7am Earth Rider will be installing two more large vessels, a 40BBL fermenter and 40BBL brite tank.

“Local support for Earth Rider has been overwhelming,” said Tim Nelson, founder of Earth Rider Brewery. “Can sales have really taken off in a short time and the brewery needs more tank capacity to keep up.”

Nelson added that the next brewery expansion is already planned for late 2018. Earth Rider began brewing operations last September and intends to expand distribution to Two Harbors this week.

“It’s validating to feel this pressure on the supply side,” said Frank Kaszuba, Earth Rider director of brewing. “We’re pleased to know that people are enjoying Earth Rider Beer.”
