Milwaukee Brewing Co. will have seven brewery tanks shipped to its facility today, allowing the brewery to increase its annual craft beer production by nearly 70%. MBC CEO Dave Hock said the new capability will allow the brewery to create and innovate new products such as LoCal Haze IPA, hard salts and new cocktails slated to launch this summer. “This incredible opportunity allows us to increase production of Milwaukee craft beer classics, such as Louie’s Demise,” Hock said in a statement. “We will also be able to intensify our contract work with domestic producers of total alcoholic beverages to help them develop their own new products. The brewery tanks were purchased from Marshfield Quality tank solutions and delivered to MCB’s 9th Street location in Milwaukee. Each brewery vat can produce 240 barrels of beer, which equates to roughly 24 million pints of beer per year. With the increase in capacity, MCB will hire 8 employees to operate a new shift. The company also plans to hire more brewery, production and hospitality workers throughout the summer months, according to a press release. MCB was founded in 1997 and started as Milwaukee Ale House with a custom 15 bbl brewery. The brewery has since grown to produce year-round beers with over 300 unique seasonal flavors and a production capacity of 100,000 barrels per year.
