Spring, a time for things to grow. There’s major growth happening just up the shore in Two Harbors. Castle Danger Brewery is blossoming into a production brewery. Currently CDB produces 300 barrels per year, but will soon be upping the ante to an impressive 1500 - 2000 barrels with their new 30 barrel tanks and 60 barrel fermenters. Last Monday most of the equipment arrived at their pre-engineered 7,000 square ft. brew building in downtown. In addition to all this shiny new hardware, Castle Danger will also be adding a canning line enabling them to start producing 12oz. six-packs of their Danger Ale, 17-7 Pale Ale, and Cream Ale their summer seasonal this June. Castle Danger will continue to utilize their current brewery for R&D purposes. The new taproom which wraps around the front of the new facility will sport a patio which faces the lake. This expects to be a great place to sit out and enjoy a couple brews in the summer months.
In addition to head brewer Mason Williams, CDB expects to hire 6-8 people to fill various support positions which is always great news. The brewery will continue to self-distribute while it explores new channels with local distributors.
