Brewery Vivant spending $300,000 to double capacity and start shipping beer to Chicago

Brewery Vivant in Grand Rapids is planning a $300,000 expansion that will double their brewing capacity to 5,000 barrels and allow them to expand distribution.

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Brewery Vivant will start sending beer to Chicago this fall after doubling their brewing capacity with a $300,000 expansion this summer.

In late May, early June, the Belgian-style microbrewery will squeeze four new 60-barrel fermentation tanks into their operation at 925 Cherry Street SE, effectively doubling their annual brewing capacity to 5,000 barrels.

Vivant is planning to brew 3,000 barrels this year after opening in late 2010. Co-owner Jason Spaulding said the brewery will cap their volume after the expansion.

The expansion comes about a year ahead of schedule, Spaulding said. The move into the Chicago market will be the company's first out-of-state distribution.
