In June, the city approved plans to develop a brewery district in Over-the-Rhine
. Part of that district includes the expansion of the Sam Adams brewery
Cincinnati is one of three places in the country to brew Sam Adams beer.
Sam Adams is planning a 6,700-square-foot expansion of its Central Parkway facility. The brewery will be putting $6 million of improvements into the facility, with $3.5 million toward building new beer storage and $2.3 million in new beer storage tanks.
The brewery, whose build-out is being handled by Cincinnati-based Reece-Campbell Inc.
, will hold 14 large tanks with the space for six more tanks to be added; nine tanks will be added to the bottling and packaging facility.
Sam Adams is currently hiring eight positions, including a project engineer and brewing operator.
