Weyerbacher Ground Breaking, Brewpub, New IPA, New Logo - Just The Facts

We brought you the news of the upcoming $1 Million expansion at Weyerbacher,and yesterday we brought you the news & video of the groundbreaking ceremony held in Easton, PA.  Because there were so many questions after yesterday’s events, Weyerbacher has published the following fact sheet to answer questions about the possibility of a brew-pub, their growth, the new IPA replacement and much more:

Groundbreaking: Today’s groundbreaking by Easton Mayor Sal Panto signifies the beginning of construction of a 7500 sq ft. expansion to the Weyerbacher Brewing facility, about a 40% increase in physical space. This additional space will allow Weyerbacher to increase capacity up to 30,000 bbls (31 gals each) as business grows. The new building is expected to be complete in September /October of this year. Weyerbacher began producing beer in 1995 in a much smaller 4500 sq ft facility on S. 6th St., in Easton’s west ward.

Weyerbacher Brewing Breaks Ground

We brought you the story about Weyerbacher’s upcoming $1 Mil expansion (story HERE)…and as much is there’s not a lot to see here, I did think you’d want a peek at the photo Weyerbacher is tweeting out today of the “ground breaking”…or “ceremonial first dig” as they are calling it.

Weyerbacher Tiny - Firkin @ Standard Tap 2/29 (Leap Day)

Weyerbacher–$1 Million Expansion, Triple Capacity & a Brewpub & June Replacement for Hops Infusion (Project IPA #5)

imageI’m excited to report some pretty drastic changes will be taking place at Weyerbacher.  It looks like the brewery will undergo a $1 Million expansion to triple the capacity of their current setup.

The official announcement will come Monday afternoon and word is while there will not initially be a Brewpub, future plans DO include the possibility of a new Weyerbacher brewpub, something we haven’t seen in many years.  This is of course dependent on having the space to build a brewpub in the expansion.

Word out of the brewery is also that Project IPA #5 will officially replace Hops Infusion in June 2012…stay tuned for a new name.

Weyerbacher Uniform Will Be a KrystalHopfenRoggenBocken Coming 2/25

Back in January we brought you the first peek at Weyerbacher Uniform…the next beer in their Brewers Select Series.  Looks like our friend Chris Wilson has worked out a “style” and it’s official…Weyerbacher Uniform will be a “KrystalHopfenRoggenBocken.”  Uniform will be 25% Rye, 25% Wheat & 50% Pilsner malts and use German Hefe yeast.  Uniform will be 7% ABV and package din the traditional 12oz bottles.  According to Bill Bragg @ Weyerbacher, “It is as bitter as a nice IPA and has a beautiful aroma which blends American hops with the traditional clove notes of Weiss beer!”  Look for Uniform on draft at select accounts with 12oz bottles and growler fills only at the brewery beginning 2/25/2012!
