Catamount's new facility is opened

The Catamount Brewing Co. last week announced the grand opening of the new wing of its brewing facility in White River Jct., VT.

Opening festivities included ribbon-cutting ceremonies by Gov. Richard Snelling. Vermont's Secretary of Development, Frank McDougall was also on hand to mark the event.

According to Catamount's brewmaster and president Stephen Mason, the brewery's steady growth during the past four years has resulted in the need for a larger facility. The new wing will house production equipment which will allow Catamount to increase its present annual output from 6,000 barrels to 10,000 barrels.

The expansion was financed through a combination of Vermont Industrial Development Authority funds, a Small Business Administration Loan from Randolph National Bank and private investors.

"Despite difficult economic times, we were able to find funding sources who liked what they saw in Catamount in terms of past performance and future projections," Mason noted. "Sales are strong now in current markets and this new production will allow us to serve those markets more fully and expand into some new market areas with exciting potential."
