Next year, Coronado Brewing Co. will be taking a big step in the evolution of its business.
According to a Heather Dueitt, Coronado marketing manager, the Coronado, Calif.-based brewery is scheduled to have a canning line in place by the end of the year, and will begin canning some of its beers, “around late February/early March.” While the beers to be canned have not been chosen as of yet, Dueitt told Tenemu in an email that the brewery would “most likely start with current beers in production.”
In addition, the brewery has secured a building close to its San Diego location that is going to be used for storage and office space and perhaps a new brew house as well.
“We have been growing at a very high rate the last few years, it was time for us to make some big changes to the brewery to help us maintain the pace” said Brandon Richards, vp of sales and marketing, in a press release. “We have been trying to find more space in the brewery to allow us to add a canning line and that was accomplished.”
In addition to the new canning line, a new multi-million dollar renovation and the purchase of four new 240-barrel fermenters will allow Coronado to expand its production capacity to 65,000 bbls by the end of the year, up from 45,000 bbls.
