Mountain Brewers reports expansion.

The Mountain Brewers, makers of Long Trail Ale, announced plans to expand their brewing operations which will nearly triple the company's existing brewing capacity.

According to brewery president and co-founder Andy Pherson, key components of the expansion include a new boiling kettle, a new bulk-bottling tank, six new fermentation tanks, an enlarged physical plant and the hiring of new personnel.

Founded in 1989 by Pherson and partner Jim Negomir, the brewery occupied 3,000-square-feet in a former woolen mill, and had an annual capacity of 3,000 barrels. After the expansion is complete, the brewery will occupy 10,000-square-feet at the same location, with a capacity of 20,000 barrels.
