Sales soared 56 percent last year to $39 million, up from $25 million in 2010. Production is on track to jump an additional 50 percent this year, to about 240,000 barrels of beer, Magee said.
The article also makes mention of Lagunitas’ “room to grow” capacity (still looking for a term for this…expandable?) between all its plants with recent reports placing an estimate between 1.2 and 1.4 million barrels. Note: that number is different from working/functional or theoretical/maximum capacity. Sierra Nevada has a theoretical capacity of around 1 million barrels in Chico. New Belgium and Craft Brew Alliance each have around 900,000 barrels of theoretical capacity. Not sure what those breweries’ “room to grow” capacities are but Lagunitas will be up there by the end of next year.
Incredible given that the brewery only did around 160,000 barrels last year relative to those much larger breweries.
