It has been three months since Colorado’s Oskar Blues opened the new brewery in Brevard, North Carolina. Here in March, 2013, the brewery is operating at full capacity. That means all the tanks are full of beer. What is a brewery to do? You add more tanks. We are told six more tanks are on the way to Brevard, allowing OB to make even more beer.
The Brevard, NC brewery now supplies the East Coast Oskar Blues markets. A lot of craft breweries are finding that over time, it is cheaper to build a second brewery then to deal with rising shipping costs.
