More Brooklyn Lager in the works

While Brooklyn Brewery no longer has its sights set on Red Hook, it is poised to expand in its Williamsburg location.

Brooklyn Brewery founder Steve Hindy tells our paper, "“Support like this is vital to growing manufacturing jobs in New York City. These funds will enable us to complete a six-fold capacity expansion, adding 15 full-time jobs with benefits, and further expanding the Brewery’s green initiatives.”

It's all part of the brewery's $6.5 million expansion of its 79 N 11th St. space. The $800,000 grant from the state government will go towards converting 13,500 square feet of vacant distribution space into a fermentation facility, and increasing their production from 8,000 to a whopping 50,000 barrels a year. That's a lot of lager.
