Blue Stallion Brewing Co. is in the midst of their first brewery expansion, only six months after opening near the corner of West Third Street and Newtown Pike. The project will add enough cooler storage capacity to begin distribution of beer to the surrounding region in February.
The expansion will add a 367-square-foot cooler to the brewery; currently, the only cooler servicing the brewery is the 190-square-foot apparatus behind the bar, which is just large enough to handle the demand for kegs in the brewery’s taproom, according to a release.
“The size of our current cooler is the biggest bottleneck we face with beer production,” co-owner Xavier Donnelly said. “We’ll no longer have to keep finished beer in the conditioning tanks simply because we don’t have room to store the kegs. This new cooler will triple our current cold room capacity.”
