In 2012, Ghost River Brewing hopes to expand bottling to seasonal beers

Ghost River six-pack

The end of 2011 marked the start of production for Ghost River Brewing’s new bottling line. Six-packs of Ghost River’s Golden Ale can now be found across the Mid-South. For now, the Golden Ale is the only beer being bottled by the Memphis craft brewery.

That may change in 2012.

In an interview with The Commercial Appeal’s Lindsay Melvin published last week, Ghost River founding partner Chuck Skypeck said the next phase for the bottling line is being planned.

And it involves the brewery’s seasonal beers.

I’m shooting for a seasonal beer rotation. Probably 1887 IPA in the winter, Black Magic (dark beer) in the spring, Octoberfest in the fall and then the Witbier (Belgian-style wheat beer) in the summer,” Skypeck told the newspaper. [source]

So when might this happen? Possibly this summer, says Skypeck.

Skypeck told FuzzyBrew by e-mail that Ghost River is already selling 100% of its increased capacity in beer from the brewery’s major expansion in 2011.

So to bottle seasonals, we have to add more capacity. Yet another project,” Skypeck wrote. “It all depends on how long it takes to fabricate new tanks and get them installed and commissioned.”

Stayed tuned for more details as we hear about them.

  1. I would definitely pick up sixers of 1887 and Black Magic at my local grocery store.
