For the first time in its 155-year history, Stevens Point Brewery will add a second shift.
The brewery in the town of the same name said it is adding the shift in its packaging department to keep pace with increased brewing capacity and steadily growing sales. The shift will add at least five new jobs, the company said.
Stevens Point Brewery said it has invested $2.1 million in new equipment and warehouse space in the past three years, and earlier this year finished an expansion that included nine new fermentation tanks and other equipment that brings its overall annual capacity to 120,000 barrels of beer.
