Bell's expansion news: Take a look at how we are growing
COMSTOCK – The banner on the side says it all - “We’re growing so more beer will be flowing.”
That growth has become even more evident over the last few weeks.
On Sept. 13, a new hot water tank, energy storage tank, cold water tank and millstar were installed. Later that day, four of Bell’s new tanks were delivered from Wisconsin on the S.S. Badger to Ludington (photo below, left).
The new mashtun and kettle were lowered into place two days later. All are part of a new 200-barrel brewhouse and an expansion that will also include a new fermentation cellar, a new employee area, parking lot and more.
More equipment is expected to arrive in the coming months which should allow us to get the new brewhouse up and running by January.
Local media were on site to help share some of these important milestones. Below are some links in case you missed them. You can also take a look at the video embedd above and below.
