Evolution Brewing will soon be making the move from Delmar, Delaware to Salisbury, Maryland. The brewer has maxed out its current location.
Real estate and government funds have attacted Tom Knorr and company to Maryland. Evolution has purchased a 40,000 square foot old ice plant for the new brewery. Current production should hit 4,500 barrels (139,500 gals) this year. After the move, Evolution will have the capacity to do around 8,000 barrels (248,000 gals.) The facility has the space potential for a 50,000 barrel a year facility. Room to grow!
The Maryland Economic Development Assistance has granted funds to help with the move. Construction has already begun. The site will be completed in February, 2012.
Evolution Brewing will help bring Marylands craft brewery count to 20. With more on the way. [BaltimoreSun]
