(Georgetown, DE) – The Better Beer Authority visited 16 Mile Brewing to get an update on what is new at the brewery. If you don’t have ten minutes to spare, check out the highlights below…
- Production is up 230% “from this time last year” (assuming interview happened in August/September). The company produced 850 barrels in 2011, per the Brewers Association.
- They have expanded their facility which is now includes tavern/retail space, a new walk-in cooler and more brewhouse space. Once the brewhouse is maxed out with equipment, they’ll be able to produce 10,000 barrels.
- They want to become regional brewery & focus on distribution in Delaware and to adjacent states
- Greater demand has forced them to transition from single-serve aluminum bottles to 6-packs. For aluminum bottles, you must purchase 30,000 – 50,000 units of any one brand which creates a storage issue.
- 16 Mile Old Court Pale Ale and 16 Mile Inlet India Pale Ale are their best sellers
- Planning to do some collaborations in the future
