Press Release

Peterborough, ON, May 1, 2014

Peterborough's Own Publican House Brewery has begun the next phase of expansion through the installation of four additional 2,500 litre fermenting tanks, quadrupling the brewing capacity.

"This expansion is a great step forward for the brewery" said Matt Philips, Partner at Publican House. "We really appreciate the support we've received from the community and with this expansion we're happy to now be able to serve them even better."

The four tanks were loaded onto a flatbed truck for delivery to the Brewery on April 30 where they were then lifted by crane into their final position. These tanks will be located directly behind the brewery at the downtown location, allowing for quadruple the brewing capacity going forward. With Publican House becoming available in the LCBO and the brewery recently receiving two awards at the Ontario Brewing Awards, the demand for the brewery has been increasing significantly over the past few months.

Furthermore, the expansion will allow Publican House Brewery to produce one additional year round brew to be launched this summer. Publican House currently has two distinct brews available year round: the award-winning Publican House Ale, a German Kolsch style beer and Square Nail Pale Ale, a west coast-style pale ale.
