Thirsty Dog Brewing Expanding In Akron, OH

31 August 2012

imageWe’re now constantly posting news of brewery expansions….this is good news for craft beer lovers.  Today it’s Akron, Ohio’s Thirsty Dog Brewing…details from

Two giant stainless steel fermenters capable of holding 90 barrels each were delivered and installed Thursday at the Akron brewery. Another three are expected at the end of September.

The new equipment will allow the regional brewer to dramatically boost its capacity, expand its reach in New York state, and start distributing in West Virginia and Illinois. Thirsty Dog is now available in 13 states.

The 14-foot, conical fermenters were custom-made by Silver State Stainless of Nevada. Workers had to squeeze them into place — there was less than an inch of room available on each side in some areas as they were hauled through the brewery.
