On the afternoon of Tuesday January 29, 2013, Oakshire Brewing of Eugene, Oregon will receive and installation of our two new 80-barrel fermentation vessels made by MetalCraft Fabrication in Portland.
“In 2012 we produced 6,500 barrels (1 barrel = 31 US Gallons)” says Oakshire representative Amanda Pence, adding, “and after our expansion is complete (April 1st) we will have the capacity to produce 17,000 barrels annually with anticipated production of 9,200 barrels in 2013.”
This tank installation on Tuesday will be the brewery’s first step in reaching their expansion goals.
