Finally, after a very long and unnecessarily difficult process fraught with numerous and myriad delays and setbacks, I'm very happy to announce that Westbrook Brewing Company at about 11:30 am today officially closed on the site where we will construct our brewery! The location is at 301 Ridge Road in Mt. Pleasant, which is right next to the Velocity Sports Performance building on Wando Park Blvd and backs up to I-526.
Although we had a long delay closing on the property, we were able to use that extra time to get our building designed, approved, and ready to go, which means that on Monday our contractor will start clearing and grading the site!
301 Ridge, now
301 Ridge, in 6 months
The brewery is going to be approximately 15k square feet, and will house our 30 barrel brewing system and 60 barrel fermenting tanks, a cold room, a separate "cool" room for storing oak barrels, a quality control lab, and (hopefully) a tasting room where we'll feature our standard beer lineup as well as some small batch, experimental brews.
As construction progresses I'll be posting some photos on here periodically, but keep an eye on our Facebook page for the full construction photo album.
We can't wait to start brewing beer for all you thirsty people out there! Buckle up, South Carolina!
