Yakima Brewing and Malting building new $2-million brewery

Herbert Grant, president, Yakima Brewing and Malting Co., Inc., announced that the company plans to build a new state-of-the-art brewery in Yakima, WA.

The $2-million facility should be in operation by March, 1991. When completed, it is estimated that the new operation will produce up to 25,000 barrels of beer a year, over four times what is being brewed at the present North Front Street plant in Yakima.

"The present facility has operated at 90-percent to 120-percent capacity for the past two years," Grant explained, "and with a rapidly expanding market, a higher capacity brewery is long overdue.

"The design of the new tower brewhouse, and the additional fermenting and storage sections, will help us continue meeting our strict quality control standards," Grant continued. "A larger, all-copper, direct-fired kettle will be the centerpiece of the new brewhouse. This kettle and the other new equipment will help us become more efficient."

Yakima Brewing and Malting will create approximately 10 new jobs within the first year of production at the new plant, according to Grant.

"Yakima Brewing and Malting Company is yet another example of a local company that is expanding their business and creating new jobs," said Dave McFadden, assistant director, New Vision. "It shows us companies can grow and thrive in the Yakima Valley."
