Oskar Blues Brewery plans to lease 30,375 square feet in the Sylvan Valley Industrial Center in Brevard. The new location will be in addition to the current facility on Mountain Industrial Drive in Brevard that opened in 2012.
A press release states, “The move comes as the Brevard brewery works to expand brewing, canning, and overall operational capacity in order to keep pace with growing demand.”
The move is also expected to create 10 more full-time positions at the new facility.
Oskar Blues General Operations Manager Thomas Transue says, “We feel extremely fortunate that demand for our products has maintained growth, giving our local leadership an opportunity to look for creative ways to expand our operations and headcount. In 2020, our Brevard facility will produce over 200,000 barrels. The addition of the Sylvan Valley Industrial Center site will allow our facility some much-needed flexibility to increase capacity, hire more employees, and ship more product. We can’t wait to get started.”
According to the release, the new facility will allow for more “ancillary support functions such as cold storage, logistics, and specialized packaging lines.”
Here are the current COVID Guidelines to expect at the Brevard location according to Oskar Blues’ website.
