IRVINE, CA Evans Brewing Company, a producer of award-winning craft beers and owner/operator of The Public House restaurant and tasting room, today announced a letter of intent to secure a site for the company's planned new Orange County brewery facility, which will provide greater production capacity to meet the anticipated future demand for Evans Brewing products.
Evans Brewing Company is expanding its footprint in its native Orange County, California, with the proposed new brewery site, the recent opening of The Public House restaurant and tasting room in downtown Fullerton, and its current brewing facility, Orange County's oldest craft brewery, located in Irvine. Current product distribution reaches well beyond Orange County, with retailers throughout California and in 6 additional states -- Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico.
"As the thirst for Evans Brewing Company's products grows, a larger brewing facility will be critical to keep up with demand," said Evan Rapport, Chief Operating Officer of Evans Brewing Company. "A larger brewing facility will help us to continue increasing the number of retailers, including restaurants, that carry Evans beers. Once final lease terms are negotiated and agreed upon, we expect development of the new brewery to begin."
Hughes Marino, Inc., an award-winning commercial real estate services company specializing in tenant representation, was retained earlier this year to locate and negotiate terms for the sale or lease of a new brewery building. First Key Consulting Inc., a leading global brewing industry consulting firm consisting of highly talented brewery consultants and malting experts, was engaged to conduct a technical assessment of the new brewery project including start-up, operating and supply chain requirements. Brewery construction services will be provided by The Marshall Group.
