Raleigh brewery announces expansion plans

May 27, 2018 by  

Trophy Brewing, a popular spot on Morgan Street, recently announced it has plans to expand its system for brewing barrel-aged and sour brews. The taproom and pizzeria also plans to add additional outdoor seats at the building’s front.

Trophy bought the Morgan street property, which was a pizza parlor and brewery, in 2012. Parts of the building were then in use as a convenience store and laundromat, and continued to be used for those purposes for years. However, this is now where Trophy plans to start its sour program. Construction should start later this year and be finished by Summer 2019.

David Meeker, Trophy’s owner, says he will keep the pizzeria open during construction, though it will be necessary to close for a few days. The business will likely have to lose some outdoor seats as well.

The expansion is Trophy’s commitment to program that will produce saisons, wild ales, and other products that are an acquired taste. Although Trophy is brewing beer in another space, they have only limited production of sour and wild ales, and have run out of temperature-controlled space. The expansion at Morgan Street will include adding blending and fermenting tanks, as well as giving the brewers more room for barrel-aging their beers.

When businesses make improvements like this, they might consider working with a banner printing company to help to decorate for the opening day.
