Old Forge Brewing Co To Top 1,000 bbl in 2012

We’ve been covering our pal Damien Malfara and Old Forge Brewing company as they have grown from a small brew pub to a production brewery…and I’m excited to report that Damien will be topping 1,000 bbl by the end of 2012.  This from the RepublicanHerald:

The demand for the more popular beers - Endless Summer Ale and T-Rail Pale Ale, in pint-sized cans - led Malfara to open a second brewery at 601 E. Market St. in the Irontown Commerce Center, the former location of TRW. At the site, they brew, keg and can beverages to be distributed by local distributors Henry Voelcker Inc. and Maloney Distributor and Philadelphia area distributor Bella Vista. Also, the beer can be purchased at Weis Markets and restaurants in the region.

At the brewery on Market Street, there are four brewing tanks, four fermentation tanks and two bright beer tanks, where the beer is stored before packaging.

The two buildings are separate operations with their own liquor licenses. Everything sold at the Mill Street location is brewed there with the exception of Endless Summer and T-Rail, Malfara said.

Malfara is expecting to produce 1,000 barrels of product by the end of 2012 after having brewed 500 already this year. There are 31 gallons in a barrel.
