New Brewhouse Coming Summer 2019
- Double annual production capability
- New 900 square foot rooftop seating
- New tasting room
- Expanded patio dining between brewhouse and existing pub
- Brewery tours
- New two-story grain silo
Salmon River Brewery has broken ground on a new 1,800-square-foot brewhouse in McCall, Idaho, next door to its restaurant in the town’s historic railroad depot.
The facility will house Salmon River’s existing 7-BBL brew system, current and new fermenters and brite tanks, and a new two-story grain silo. It will also sport a tasting room overlooking the brewhouse, a 900 square foot rooftop deck and redesigned patio seating between the brewery and the current restaurant.
“We could not be more excited to see construction start on this project,” Salmon River Brewery co-owner Matt Hurlbutt says. “The new brewhouse will enable us to double our beer-making capabilities, as well as expand the community gathering space in the Hotel McCall Courtyard. Plus, the new facility will allow us to offer brewery tours, set aside a dedicated tasting room, and provide other new services.”
With the expansion Salmon River Brewery’s capacity will grow from 1,100 barrels per year to 2,200 barrels annually.
Owners Matt and Jennifer Hurlbutt celebrated the groundbreaking Oct. 15 with general contractor TJ Wilcomb of Jordan-Wilcomb Construction, project manager Nic Swanson with Swanson and Sylvester, architect Luke Vannoy with McCall Design and Planning and property owner David Carey.
The new building will be adjacent to the current Salmon River Brewery Pub at 411 Railroad Ave., replacing the current 900-square-foot, off-site brewhouse. Completion is scheduled for summer 2019.
