Santa Fe Brewing Co. Announces Plans for Expansion

SANTA FE, New Mexico – Santa Fe Brewing Company is happy to announce its acquisition of property adjacent to the existing brewery off Highway 14.

After years of research and planning, Santa Fe Brewing has made the decision to expand its brewery operation. The purhase of the 3.27 acre piece of land will be used to build a new brewing facility that will increase capacity significantly.

The Santa Fe Brewing expansion is projected to take three years and to be completed in three different phases. “We are exicted to take this next step in growing Santa Fe Brewing”, said Brian Lock, president, “We have not scheduled a date to break ground because we were waiting to make sure everything with the land acquisition was final”. When construction of the final phase is complete the brewery will be able to increase it’s capacity from the current 30,000 barrels annually to 200,000 barrels annually.

With the expansion of distribution into three new states in 2013, a new facility was inevitable. “In order to keep up with demand we had to rethink or current facility and we were lucky that the property right next door was available,” remarked Lock.

Santa Fe Brewing Company is New Mexico’s oldest and most award-winning brewery. We currently have distribution throughout New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Nevada, Kansas & Missouri. All of our beers are brewed, canned and bottled on premise in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Year round favorites include Happy Camper IPA, Imperial Java Stout, Santa Fe Pale Ale, Santa Fe Nut Brown, State Pen Porter, and Chicken Killer Barley Wine. Seasonal styles include Freestyle Pilsner, Oktoberfest, Black IPA, and Irish Red Ale.
