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.
