With an eye for tripling its capacity, Springfield Brewing Company has purchased the building to its west, the News-Leader reports.
Springfield Brewing Company has purchased the building directly west of its downtown location, as the company prepares to triple its brewing capacity.
Bryan Bevel, a partner and the brewing company’s managing director of operations, told the News-Leader this week that the installation of eight 30-barrel stainless steel fermentation tanks in the building at 521 W. McDaniel will give the brewery the ability to produce about 6,000 barrels of beer annually. In 2015, operating at maximum capacity, the brewery produced about 2,200 barrels.
“It’s not that we need more space,” Bevel said. “We need more fermentation.”
