|- (Probrewer.com) - Brewery Ommegang is beginning another expansion of its facility to keep up with demand for its Belgian beers.|
The first phase of the $1.8 million project will include the construction of an 8,000 square foot warehouse. Currently Ommegang has to warehouse its products off-site in New Jersey and California. The new warehouse will also provide additional warm cellaring space for the bottle conditioning and will free up space for production.
Recently, the demand has been so high for Ommegang's beers that for a time it was being brewed in Belgium and shipped to the United States.
The next phase of the expansion will see the creation of a new bottling hall, store, restaurant and office space.
