Abita Brewery Expanding Capacity
Abita Brewing has been turning out great craft beer for more than two decades and now it is about to go through a substantial growth spurt.
Eight new 9,300-gallon aging tanks have arrived at the Louisiana brewery as part of an expansion project that will be completed in early 2008. The construction will increase brewing and warehouse capacity, as well as provide new office space for Abita.
Abita expects to sell more than 62,000 barrels of beer this year.
