Next year will mark a huge turning point in the history of Evil Twin Brewing, which has been a so-called “gypsy brewery” since it was founded in 2010.

In an email, Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, owner of Evil Twin, told Tenemu that the company is currently building a brewery in the Bushwisk/Ridgewood area of New York that is tentatively scheduled to open “before the summer of 2017.” The new facility will encompass not only approximately 10,000 square feet of production room, but also 4,000 square feet for a taproom and outdoor area.

“All in all the new brewery will work as an experimental outlet where we can do new beers/test batches that we might move to bigger scale,” said Jarnit-Bjergsø, in an email. “We want to establish Evil Twin as a true New York brand and felt that this was the step we needed to take to do that. We can bring colleagues in to do collaborations and “pay back” to all the breweries that have invited us in over the years.”

According to Jarnit-Bjergsø, the new brewery will have a 5,000 bbl production capacity to start and will be utilized exclusively for new beers, as the company will continue to produce beers under contract with other breweries as it has in the past.
