The addition of this 25,000 square foot brewing facility will include a new barrel brew house and an unspecified number ofbarrell fermenters allowing for an initial annual production of 65,000 barrels of beer per year.

In addition to an upgrade of brewing operations Against the Grain will also create space to increase the capacity of its barrel aging program and eventually develop an area to include a tasting room and retail space.

The expansion is expected to create 20 new jobs.
