The brewery has already broken ground on an expansion on Ottley Drive that will take the their annual capacity from 100,000 barrel to 400,000 barrels.  That raises the question – Where are you distributing to next?  Here’s the buzz on what to expect.  Per @AJCFoodBiz:

Freddy Bensch of @SweetWaterBrew tells me expansion is a 2-year project. “We have a hard time keeping up” with existing demand for #beer

@SweetWaterBrew says it will eventually expand geographically — deeper into Florida and Tennessee. “Surgical” approach, says co-founder.

Co-founder says @SweetwaterBrew to “start looking heavily in Virginia” for opportunities to sell. It’s a hot market and this reporter’s home.
