We work exclusively with existing, licensed breweries and beverage businesses to allow them to scale up and/or to launch a packaged product. Whether you are needing extra capacity, packaging capabilities, better economies of scale or help with seasonal demand, our entire operation is designed to help you grow and to grow with you. From flexible scheduling, raw materials, batch sizes to packaging, we can work with you to find the optimal arrangement to get you what you need. Our minimum batches sizes are 10bbl, minimum order sizes are 20bbl (i.e., 2 turns on our 10bbl pilot brewhouse), our minimum annual commitment is 120bbls, and our minimum batch size to avoid additional small-batch fees is 60bbls.
