SingleCut Beersmiths Announce Expansion

SingleCut Beersmiths Announce Expansion

Posted on September 23, 2015 by NYCBG

With a booming national craft beer movement, we’re seeing some exciting developments as local NYC breweries grow. Earlier this month, we outlined Transmitter Brewing’s expansion plans. Today, we’re happy to bring you news about growth at SingleCut Beersmiths.

Last week, SingleCut posted a picture on Twitter showing Head Brewer Rich Buceta unloading a new 90-barrel fermenter. The picture showed just one of the two new fermenters the brewery unloaded that day.

With the new fermenters, SingleCut has increased their capacity by 250 barrels (500 kegs!) per month. That’s a nearly 50% growth from 550 barrels before the expansion.

As you might have guessed, more fermentation space means more beer. We spoke to SingleCut’s Head of Finance, Val Lang about what the expansion means for the brewery and to make sure all that extra beer has a home.

We learned that SingleCut has extended their territory with their distributors (Sarene, AJ’s Beer Warehouse and Craft Collective). This means that you’ll have an easier time finding favorites like Billy 18-Watt in the NYC metro area, as well as Upstate New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. And with the addition of a new bottling line last month, we’ll be seeing more SingleCut beer in bottles than ever before.

If that’s not enough excitement, SingleCut is also working on plans to add more seating to their Astoria tasting room. If you’ve been to the brewery, you probably noticed how tall their ceilings are. They plan to take advantage of this space by building mezzanine above the existing floor plan.

Lots of exciting developments for a brewery that isn’t even three years old yet (their third anniversary party is in December – we’ll keep you posted with details on our events page). We look forward to seeing more SingleCut available throughout the city!
