Green Flash Brewing Co. is ready to move to their new 45,000sf state of the art brewery in San Diego. The new location will house a custom built brewery, a 4,000sf tasting room and office space. Opening day is scheduled for June 1, 2011.
CEO Mike Hinkley said “We are so proud of the new brewery. It took two years of planning, nine months of construction and absolute dedication by the entire Green Flash team. Chuck and all of our brewer’s will bring the same passion and spirit to the craft, but will now have the tools available to ensure great quality and consistency in every batch while producing enough to satisfy the great demand for our ales. The added capacity will also allow us to expand into select new markets after we have fulfilled the orders within our current distribution area.”
Green Flash Brewmaster, Chuck Silva, added, “I’m very excited to have brand new, custom built, state of the art brewing equipment to brew on in our new facility in San Diego. While the new equipment will help improve our quality, efficiency, and throughput it will also give us the ability to expand the line up with new releases, and extend our seasonal and specialty offerings in the bottle as well as on draft. It really is a dream come true to brew beer at this level and on this scale, allowing me to share my craft with so many people.”
The Green Flash tasting room in Vista will close its doors on May 29, 2011 with a farewell/customer appreciation Party party.
