    (Lakewood, New York - April 24, 2012) Southern Tier Brewing Company of Lakewood, New York will soon break ground on a 110-barrel brewhouse which will increase capacity threefold. In anticipation, the brewery has added a second conditioning room, making this the third expansion since moving to its current location just two and a half years ago. With the addition of six 660-barrel fermenters, the cellar will more than double in volume with the ultimate goal of producing 150,000 barrels per year. It is expected that the new brewhouse will be fully operational by Thanksgiving, 2012.

    While the brewery intends to open a few small markets in 2013, the focus is to continue to service their existing distribution network. Southern Tier also expects to add new brands to their already robust lineup, including a new variety pack and a 750mL Belgian series among other plans.

    I'm gonna take a guess, but I'd assume that the executives at Bud bought some ST beers for their board meetings since their own beer sucks.

    I really hope this means they'll come to Iowa. They are all around us already (Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri)!

    Checked my calender. not April 1st. Dang it.

    Maybe i'll get lucky and they will do all new recipes.
  15. Ditto. I went in on a case with some friends and have been enjoying them every couple months since release. Been fun to watch the spices kind of shift balance with each other each time. Good on these guys though, I like a good amount of their stuff, particularly the yearly release stuff.

    Great news indeed, haven't had a bad one yet by Southern Tier, in fact I need to buy more sixers and samplers. They do seem to mix up their samplers very well, variety wise.
