Wild Goose beer expands market.

Wild Goose beer expands market

With the growing popularity of Wild Goose Amber beer, the Chesapeake's own micro-brewed beer, the Wild Goose Brewery announced an extensive expansion of its Cambridge, MD, brewing facility.

Wild Goose now has the capacity to produce 7,800 barrels of its beer per year. The addition of a 50-barrel capacity fermentation vessel, which will allow it to brew six times a week, is necessary because Wild Goose has become one of the most successful microbreweries in the area, according to a Wild Goose Brewing Co. spokesman.

"The growth of Wild Goose is exciting for us and we are grateful to all of our loyal customers for their great support," said brewery president Ted Garrish. Wild Goose's vice president Richard Klein said, "The expansion is far ahead of schedule but was necessary to keep fans of Wild Goose Amber happy."

Wild Goose is currently distributed throughout Maryland, Washington, D.C., northern Virginia, Richmond, Tidewater Virginia and North Carolina.
