Default Anchor to build second brewery, quadruple capacity

The San Francisco Giants and Anchor Brewing have announced that Anchor will build a second facility on the San Francisco waterfront.

Anchor Brewing will occupy what is now Pier 48 with production and distribution facilities (artist rendering), a restaurant, museum and other public attractions. The 212,000-square-foot space in the Giants’ Mission Rock development will not replace Anchor’s existing plant on Potrero Hill, but add capacity. The company’s output would quadruple from 120,000 to 600,000 barrels a year.

“This is big news for us. We can now further expand our domestic market (Anchor is sold in every state) and open up new international markets,” CEO Keith Greggor told the San Francisco Chronicle. “It’s also a huge commitment to San Francisco.”

The planned development still must get approval from a variety of agencies. If everything proceeds on schedule, construction could begin in late 2014 and brewing in 2016.
