Mammoth Brewing Company just added 50% more beer-brewing capacity this week – and it didn’t come cheap.
According to Mammoth Brewing’s Joyce Turner, MBC added two 60-barrel fermenters as well as one 60-barrel brute beer tank at a cost of $125,000. The new tanks will help boost MBC’s capacity from 5,300 to 8,000 barrels a year, produced entirely out of its facility at Whiskey Creek in Mammoth. The increased capacity, said Turner, will allow MBC to just meet the existing demand in its current distribution area – in other words, sorry L.A. Still no Southern California distribution … yet.
As for Mammoth Brewing’s business offices and Tasting Room on Berner Street, Turner did acknowledge that MBC’s lease at 94 Berner Street will expire at the end of 2013 and will not be renewed.
Therefore, MBC offices and the Tasting Room will be moving. “We want to ideally be within the Village area,” she said.
