New Realm Brewing Company (Atlanta, Georgia) sent out a press release today to confirm that it won a bid to purchase the brewing equipment located at the former Green Flash Brewing Co. facility in Virginia Beach.
After just opening its doors in January of this year, New Realm Brewing Company is set to substantially increase its brewing capacity now that it has acquired the brewing equipment housed within Green Flash Brewing Co.’s abruptly shuttered Virginia Beach location. New Realm is actively “exploring options for the location of the equipment and a potential new taproom.”
For more information on this acquisition, here are the official statements from New Realm’s founders – Carey Falcone, Bob Powers and Mitch Steele:
“This equipment presents an incredible opportunity to expand our capacity in a meaningful way while staying committed to our roots,” said Carey Falcone, CEO and co-founder of New Realm Brewing. “New Realm is proud to be part of the Atlanta community and we are enthusiastic about the opportunity to serve more New Realm fans.”
“We continue to invest in our Beltline brewery and restaurant with additional team members and new 60-bbl expansion tanks. But the reality is that, thanks to the incredible support of New Realm’s patrons and fans in Atlanta, we are capacity and space constrained in our current location,” said Mitch Steele, Brewmaster and co-founder of New Realm Brewing. “We are excited about the ways this new equipment and capacity will enable us to deliver the same high-quality beers while increasing our ability to innovate and create new beers for local fans.”
“This equipment acquisition is a unique opportunity to meet growing demand, while continuing to focus on quality and consistency. This new equipment will allow our team to brew even more of the beer that we feel passionate about,” said Chief Commercial Officer and co-founder, Bob Powers.
New Realm Brewing Company has not yet officially named a destination for this new equipment or a location for that “potential new taproom.” This story is still developing, and we will be sure to provide you with any and all updates just as soon as they surface. Stay tuned. Prost!
