Salmon River Brewery has moved into a new 1,800-square-foot Brewhouse in McCall, Idaho, next door to its restaurant in the town’s historic railroad depot.
The facility houses a 15bbl-BBL brew system, current and new fermenters and brite tanks, and a new two-story grain silo.
“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.”
