From today's RedEye article (Metropolitan Brewing searches for new location): "We're going to triple our output in the initial stages, and work up to quadrupling," said Tracy Hurst. That will require upgrades to equipment, infrastructure and the purchase of larger fermenters. The current Ravenswood location just can't accomodate the expansion, though Hurst says it's been a great space for the past few years. I know they aren't the trendiest brewery (they don't brew an IPA or produce any whalez), but they're one of my favorites, and I'm hoping this will allow them to expand their distro footprint a little and get their seasonals (namely Generator and Afterburner) into bottles and on store shelves. Regardless, some good news for anyone that likes well-made lagers.
