Mammoth Brewing adds tanks
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.
I thought they were moving to Bishop?
I hope a new tasting room means they will clean their tap lines more.
My theory is that they don’t clean the lines often or effectively. While they have a periodic batch of beer that is decent, most of the brews are either funky or downright nasty, with that heavy “butterscotch” flavor that gives away the hygiene problems.
Hi SJack, sorry you’ve not had good experience with the beers. We clean all our customers lines (and our TR’s) once a month and thoroughly, as we’re pretty conscientious of our beers…. Actually VERY conscientious. Maybe you’re remembering from before 2006?, there were some inconsistent beers coming out before that date, but we’ve been winning awards regularly for our beers at the state and country level (and even to WORLD BEER CUP awards last year) since 2006. Please try our beers again – – I know I’m the owner and I”m “supposed” to say this, but we’re making damn good beers these days!!! And glad to have so many trained judges saying the same thing.
Johndoeml – We will be building a much larger production facility in Bishop, but we will always have a pilot brewery (for specialty beers and local consumption) of about the same size that we have now located here in Mammoth Lakes.
Sean Turner, Owner,
Nice commercial Sean.
You and Rusty have a lot in common. Everything you did for the last 24 years was wrong. But now, you got it right!
Good luck in Bishop, I hear it’s a really nice town.
