This week Victory Brewing Co. installed eight large fermentation tanks that will boost the brewers capacity by a third. The 8 join four that were installed just last year.
Its an amazing growth spurt in a marketplace that saw overall beer sales drop 2% last year. Victory's sales however are up sharply, 25% YTD over 2009.
The new tanks will up the capacity of the brewery to almost 100,000 barrels. That is tremendous when you consider they sold under 50,000 last year and are tracking to sell 60,000 this year. Obviously the growth is expected to continue.
