The Lagunitas Brewing Co. has officially wet its whistle bottling beer in Chicago.
Lagunitas has officially wet its whistle in Chi-town? Haha, the “wet your whistle” idiom is somewhat disturbing, yet encouraging. Sounds provocative and inappropriate at times. But it most certainly appropriate for Lagunitas to open up another operational manufacturing facility. As mentioned in this article, Lagunitas increased its production volume by a whopping 70% from 2012-2013.
With Lagunitas’ Petuluma plant operating a full capacity (500,000 bbls), the Chicago plant has proved to be up and running to alleviate the supply and demand pressures for the following summer months. The Chi-town plant has the overall capacity to eventually triple the brewery’s overall production (1.5 million barrels). That’s like….. a lot of beer bro.
If you readers are too lazy to read the article attached article, here is a frame of reference for the operational parameters of the new facility…
“The facility cleans, fills, caps and labels 450 bottles of beer each minute.”
"It also has 13,000 kegs ready to be filled…"
Woah…. consumers will eventually be able to witness these feats once the taproom opens up, rested over the operations floor. Not to mention, live music every night. These guys don’t know how to have fun at all. Nor do they know how to brew beer. They just run a multi-million dollar business for no reason I guess. Suckers. Hats off to Tony Magee and the rest of the crew for supplying more beer for thirsty consumers. Drink Responsibly. Over & Out.
P.S. Oh yea…. Happy Easter.
