Track 7 Brewing Co. to double in size, release anniversary beers

Track 7, the local microbrewery at the edge of Curtis Park, is going through some big changes - and we mean that in the literal sense. Renovations are underway at Track 7 to double the size of the brewery, which will include a second tasting bar, more bathrooms and increased beer production capacity. Not bad for a homegrown brewery that'll celebrate just its first anniversary on Dec. 31.

Ryan Graham, co-owner of Track 7, said many of the renovations will be complete by their anniversary but may stretch into the early part of 2013. When its all said and done, Track 7 will grow from 2,150 square feet to about 4,400 square feet. With more fermenting tanks coming online at the brewery, that's projected to double Track 7's brewing capacity. About 500 barrels (or 15,500 gallons) of beer were brewed by Track 7 in 2012. Graham and company are also looking to hire tap room staff around the beginning of 2013.

Track 7 also plans to release three anniversary beers: a Belgian dubble that's been aged in port casks from Revolution Wines, a stout blended with coffee from Chocolate Fish roasters and a double IPA.

"Our goal is to have six to seven beers at all times," said Graham. "It's been a good year, and now we'll be able to produce a lot more beer."
