More Swigs Means More Rigs At Great Northern Brewing Company

Posted: Updated:
WHITEFISH -

According to Great Northern Brewery manager, Marcus Duffey, more people than ever are loving his lager.

Duffey says the brewery plans to expand its production by 50%, with three new tanks costing nearly $250,000.

April 1 is the installation date for the new equipment.

From planning to production, the expansion will take almost an entire year.

"We can't meet demand at this current point in production. We've expanded statewide and we're seeing distribution in seven different markets throughout the state and simply can't produce enough beer," said Duffey.

Duffey says he expects to see another 50% leap in demand over 2014.

Overall, Great Northern's most popular brews are Wheatfish, Going to the Sun IPA, and Good Medicine Imperial Red Ale.
