Karl Strauss Brewing Company has completed their brewery expansion and new bottling line just in time for their 20th anniversary, according to the brewer.
Through a statement, the company announced it has doubled their capacity from 31,000 barrels to 60,000 barrels and now has the flexibility to bottle their core beers, seasonal, and special release beers in both 12 and 22 ounce bottles.
Their converted greenhouse in Pacific Beach was redesigned by San Diego-based Public Architecture Firm, adding a two-story bottling line. The changes offer a unique touring option for the company.
In order to keep up with demand and to supply the new bottling line, the company says the expansion was necessary.
Redesigned packaging filled with beer off their new bottling line is expected to hit shelves during the first quarter of 2009.
