Ghost River BrewingGhost River beer — in 12-ounce bottles — is coming soon to a beer aisle near you.

Ghost River Brewing, Memphis’ only craft brewery, has announced a major expansion for 2011, with plans to double capacity and add a bottling line.

Ghost River is adding additional fermentation tanks, a new steam boiler and new refrigeration, as well as a modern keg filler and cleaner at its 827 S. Main Street facility, according to a release.

In addition, Ghost River is installing a new 12-head bottle filler to package Ghost River beers in bottles.

The expansion is expected to be completed by mid-summer, and beers will soon be headed to Memphis area retail shelves.

Ghost River was founded in 2007 and has three year-round brews — Golden Ale, Copperhead Red and Glacial Pale Ale — as well as a variety of seasonal beers, that Ghost River supplies to more than 80 bars and restaurants and sells in growlers from its docks.
