Barrier Brewing Company Expands, Opens New Facility
Published: Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Barrier Brewing Company, an Oceanside-based brewery operated by Evan Klein, founder, and Craig Frymark, opened its new 4600-square-foot facility at 3301 New Street A2, on May 19.
Located 1.7 miles from Barrier Brewing Company’s original 1000-square-foot brewery at 3595 Lawson Boulevard Unit E, the property expansion features a new five-barrel, four-vessel brewhouse (upgraded from its initial one-barrel brewhouse, described by Frymark as a “pimped out homebrew system”), custom-manufactured by Diversified Metal Engineering (DME) in Prince Edward Island, Canada. The system is expected to increase annual production from 600 barrels to 1500 barrels, the equivalent of 18600 to 46500 gallons of beer, respectively.
