Tooborac Brewery’s new brewhouse is open.
Co-owner Val Carlin said the new extended facility would increase production and help expand their market.
‘‘We’re available in about 50 outlets across the state at the moment,’’ she said.
The brewhouse at the Tooborac Hotel was opened on Thursday by Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh.
The brewery has made award-winning craft beer for the past four years.
Mr Walsh said the growth of craft breweries was an exciting development.
‘‘We’ve seen the growth in the wine industry over the years .
‘‘If you think about the beer market — when we were younger a town drank red cans, blue cans or green cans — now there’s such a plethora of great beers out there.
‘‘Last year (the Tooborac Brewery) had a 23 per cent increase in sales and, with the increased production capacity, is anticipating an additional 40 per cent in sales.’’
Mrs Carlin said it was great to see so many local residents at the brewery opening and thanked them for help making the hotel a success.
‘‘I see people who’ve helped share our vision to make this a multi-generational meeting place and family-centred place,’’ she said.
‘‘As my husband and I like to say — this is a place you can bring your grandchildren to and also your grandparents.’’
