Stevens Point Brewery is announcing their fifth major expansion since 2010. In a press release, the company said will invest $1.5 million in equipment and infrastructure upgrades to enable it to meet the non-stop growth in consumer demand for its handcrafted beers.

“Our business continues to grow across the board, from our Point craft beer brands to our new Ciderboys hard cider products launched in 2012,” said Joe Martino, Stevens Point Brewery Operating Partner. “Our strong sales mean we can keep investing in our brewery to continue to take advantage of opportunities in the marketplace. Being able to create some new jobs at the same time is icing on the cake. It’s an exciting time for the Stevens Point Brewery and our loyal customers.”

Earlier this year, the brewery said they completed a $2 million project that increased its annual production capacity to 150,000 barrels with the addition of a second brew kettle, 16 unitanks for fermenting and aging beer, and an automated grain handling system. The expansion also included a new can packer so the brewery could take full advantage of consumers’ increasing preference for craft beers in cans.

Martino says the expansion will mean eight new jobs.
