Yakima Craft Brewing Company increasing brewing capacity

Originally reported on May 25th.
The Washington Beer Blog just received a press release from Yakima Craft Brewing Co. regarding increases to their brewing capacity. YCBC has gained a reputation over here on the wetter side of the mountains and apparently demand has grown steadily. Brewmaster Jeff Winn is doing some great stuff over in Yakima . What’s more, he’s doing it with one of Bert Grant’s old brew kettles. We are excited to learn that YCBC beers will become more readily available. You can read about our visit to YCBC here.

Here is the press release we received this morning:

Yakima Craft Brewing Co., a craft beer brewery in Yakima, Washington, has completed the installation of equipment that will result in up to a sixty percent increase in production over the coming months.

The installation of additional fermentation vessels- where the yeast do their work to make beer- was required, along with associated plumbing and control equipment.

“This is a good day for us, and for our fans.” says President and Brewmaster Jeff Winn, “We’ll now be better able to meet the demand for our beer in Yakima and beyond.” Read the complete story on the Washington Beer Blog.
