Caldera Brewing Expands Brewhouse, Restaurant, Tasting Room & Distillery


Exciting news and lots of expansion going on a Caldera Brewing.  Details from MailTribune:

Caldera Brewing Co. is putting the finishing touches on a new, expanded brew house and soon-to-be restaurant, tasting room and distillery.

By Oct. 1, the company plans to move all of its brewing equipment into the 28,000-square-foot building, which sits a few hundred yards up Clover Lane from its current brew house, and hopes to open a 134-seat restaurant and other amenities a month later, owner Jim Mills said.

Mills said he plans to branch out from beer into distilled spirits and nonalcoholic soda and tea once the company settles in at its new location. "I've been wanting to distill for a while now, we just don't have any room where we are at now," Mills said. "We'll distill scotch, vodka, bourbon, gin ... I brew this hibiscus and rose petal iced tea that's pretty good; we'll also make that." As for soda, Mills said, Caldera likely will start with ginger ale and root beer.

With 92 seats inside and 42 outside, the restaurant will be one of Ashland's largest, Mills said. And it could expand. "We're really going to step it up a notch from what we offer at the Tap House, but we're still going to keep it affordable," Mills said
