New Belgium Fire Update

New Belgium Brewing lost about a day of production due to the fire yesterday.

What happened?

The fire broke out around 12 noon. There is a spent grain silo that is scheduled for removal and replacement. They suspect that a worker using a blowtorch on the silo sparked the fire. It was extinguished in about 30 minutes without injury. Some production time was lost, as they shut down the HVAC system to prevent smoke from entering the brewery. No other brewery damage occurred.
