Irvine, CA – Evans Brewing Company, a producer of award-winning premium craft beers, has assembled a team of companies experienced in brewery design, construction and tenant representation as part of its efforts to identify a site, design and build a new Orange County brewery facility with greater production capacity to meet the anticipated future demand for Evans Brewing products.  The company also intends to identify locations for 2 future tasting rooms in Orange County.

The company has retained Hughes Marino, Inc., an award-winning commercial real estate services company specializing in tenant representation, to locate and negotiate terms for the sale or lease of a facility for the new brewery building and potentially 2 tasting room sites in Orange County.

First Key Consulting Inc., a leading global brewing industry consulting firm consisting of highly talented brewery consultants and malting experts, is slated to conduct a technical assessment of the new brewery project including start-up, operating and supply chain requirements for the new facility.

Brewery construction services will be provided by The Marshall Group.  Since 1984, The Marshall Group has provided an unsurpassed quality of work, constructing over 300 commercial projects throughout the Southwestern United States.  The Marshall Group specializes in the construction of brewery, restaurant, hotel, retail, spa/salon, industrial, entertainment, resort, and health care industry projects from conception to completion.

Evans Brewing recently announced distribution of its packaged products in Colorado and expanded distribution to additional states is anticipated as brand awareness continues to grow.  The company is also preparing to open it first restaurant and taproom, The Public House by Evans Brewing Company, in downtown Fullerton, California.

“The team we have assembled has considerable successful experience in their respective areas of expertise, and we are pleased to have them working on our behalf,” commented Mike Rapport, Chairman/CEO of Evans Brewing Company.  “As the Evans Brewing team continues to expand the distribution footprint of its products, additional brewery production will be required, and a larger facility is expected to be necessary to meet the growing demand.”

“Additional tasting rooms are planned to provide greater awareness and accessibility for Evans Brewing products throughout Orange County and the southern California region, particularly for craft beer enthusiasts in south Orange County, and neighboring San Diego, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.”

“We look forward to providing updates as each of these expansion initiatives progress,” added Mr. Rapport.

Evans Brewing Company’s year-round offerings include Pollen Nation Honey Blonde Ale, The KrHOPen India Pale Ale, Oaklore Brown Ale, and ChocoLatté Chocolate Porter.
