HOUSTON, TX –After announcing expansion plans late last year, Karbach Brewing Co. is now ready to break ground on a facility that will allow the brewery to grow significantly. Brewmaster Eric Warner and crew are putting shovels to dirt on March 25th to launch the $15 million expansion project on Karbach Street. Once completed, the brewery will be able to produce 60,000 barrels annually with room for future growth. In addition to more beer, Karbach also expects to add a projected 100 jobs to the Houston community. The new facility will house a 120 barrel German-designed brewhouse, tasting room, private event space and kitchen.
Karbach drew national attention in 2013 when cited by The New Yorker as the 2nd fastest-growing brewery in the nation. The brewery produced nearly 19,000 barrels in 2013 and is on pace to hit 29,000 barrels this year. Local demand has been a strong driver in the quick growth with distribution limited to the greater Houston area, San Antonio and Austin.
Keeping with the spirit of supporting the local community, Houston-based firms Three Squared Design Group and Camden Construction Inc. will assist in the realization of the project. For more information about Karbach Brewing Co. please visitwww.karbachbrewing.com.
About Karbach Brewing Co.
We like beer. A lot. Our background is in the beer biz. Everything from distribution and importing to German training and brewery operations. A few years ago we had an opportunity that would allow us to open up our own brewery. We jumped on it. We’re extremely excited about this brewery, and we think it shows in everything we do. This is just plain fun for us. The day it starts to feel like a job is the day when lightning shall strike us dead. Cause, hey, at the end of the day we’re making beer. And beer is fun.
