Brewery Expansion: Twisted Pine announces plans (Boulder, CO)
Twisted Pine Branches Out and Expands Capacity
Boulder, Colorado – June 2010 – Twisted Pine has decided to branch out with a 12% expansion of its brewery. The expansion includes a larger production area, an extended patio with beer garden and a recently acquired grain silo.
The expansion comes after the company’s decision to begin out of state distribution last fall. Twisted Pine first ventured outside Colorado with distribution to Texas. Nine months later Twisted Pine Beer can be found in Colorado, Texas, Louisiana and Missouri. Future plans include distribution in Arizona and New Mexico. “I’ve been getting requests to ship out of state for years,” say owner Bob Baile. “We felt after 15 years it was time to share our beer with the rest of the world.”
The grain silo will allow for delivery of bulk grain reducing material costs and labor costs. The increased production area frees up space for more brewing vessels and eventually a bottling line.
Strong sales are attributed to the company’s seasonal beer program with a strong push from 22oz offerings of Le Petite Saison, Hoppy Man Imperial IPA and Razzy Xpress. Also scheduled for release this summer is the 15th Anniversary Beer Hoppy Knight India-style Black Ale which will be tapped during the Anniversary Party on July 17th.
Ale House sales have been soaring due to increased interest in craft beer by the general public. “More and more people are deciding to spend their evenings at the local microbrewery. Almost every brewery provides some kind of music or night time entertainment these days,” says Bob Baile. .
Based in Boulder, Colorado Twisted Pine Brewing Company has been handcrafting beer since 1995. They are the brewers of such favorites as “Hoppy Boy IPA,” “Raspberry Wheat Ale” and “Billy’s Chilies.” The Ale House is a very popular local hangout and boasts 17 taps, 5 rotating. Twisted Pine is active with local charitable organizations and a strong believer in sustainable business practices. You can find more information at www.twistedpinebrewing.com.
