3 Sheeps brewery to expand production
3 Sheeps Brewery in Sheboygan will soon be adding to its flock.
The company announced Thursday that it plans to expand operations, leasing the old Coca-Cola Plant at 1837 North Ave. Refurbishing the 40,000-square-foot space will give the company the ability to produce 200 barrels of beer a day, up from the 28 barrels a day they produce now. The expansion would also result in the creation of 15 new jobs and targeted expansion of their distribution and product line-up.
The brewery, started in 2011 by co-founder and brewmaster Grant Pauly, has expanded by leaps and bounds since then, having expanded from offering a few select beers to nearby bars and restaurants to selling a range of products in stores throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois. Pauly said they expected they'd need to expand soon but have seen a 45 percent growth year-over-year and were already reaching capacity at their current location.
