Tree House Brewing Co. plants the seeds of an expansion

Tree House

Well, that didn’t take long. Just over one year after moving Tree House Brewing Co. into its current facility in Monson, Mass., co-founder Nate Lanier announced Wednesday that another, much larger branch of the brewery would be opening soon.

“It will reside in Charlton, Massachusetts on a very central yet secluded seventy acres of land true to the Tree House aesthetic with a mixture of woods, green space, and serenity,” Lanier said in a blog post on Tree House’s website. “It is designed as an expandable and multi-faceted 45,000 square foot facility and will feature a state of the art 50 BBL brewhouse, a 5,000 square foot retail space where can sales, bottle sales, and full pours will be offered at least five days a week, and a large outdoor pavilion.” tweet

The new facility will bump Tree House’s current capacity (7,000 barrels per year) up to 30,000 barrels out the gate. Lanier says the space has a “theoretical maximum” in excess of 125,000 barrels annually. Once it’s up and running, the Monson location will be used mainly for special projects—namely barrel-aged and mixed fermentation creations.

“It will become a veritable nucleus of Tree House creative expression, experimentation, and exploration,” Lanier says. “Our existing Wild Goose canning line, a bottling line and a dedicated bottle conditioning bottling line will be in place so we may extensively carry out projects we have been working on for years but given space limitations have been unable to flesh out. “ tweet

Tree House’s owners aim to break ground on the Charlton branch in spring 2016, with brewing operations beginning (hopefully) in the first half of 2017. And then: Julius for all!

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
