Hey, thanks guys! I'm really excited. I will definitely miss the current beer garden but having a chance to build a real production facility and moving up to a regional scale brewery definitely trumps that.

Having the two breweries so close together may seem odd to some people not familiar with the brewing industry (almost everyone wants to know if there will be a partnership - no, there's not) but I think it will be a real draw to people all over the south east. especially with the amphitheater.  It is really cool to be involved in changing the culture of the south east - with beer! :)

Very cool Keith!!  It's so great to see your business grow so steadily!  The profit comes from volume and you seem to be heading in the right direction.

The brewery area itself (housing brewhouse, FVs, BBTs and packaging line) will be 6000 sq ft. We will also have tasting room, large covered porch and beer garden. When we get closer I'll post blue print plans.

Probably going to go with a 30bbl brewhouse.

What is the capacity of the current brewhouse (Marx Brothers right?)?

The total brewhouse capacity is 12 bbls (372 gallons). We have two 30bbl and four 20 bbl tanks plus two 30 bbl bright tanks and two ten bbl non jacketed bright tanks (we do a lot of lagering and extended aging hence the reason for so many BBTs).

Plan is to go with 30 bbl brewhouse and 60s and 90s FVs and BBTs. I may keep the current brew house for small tasting room batches.
