    About Commerce Brewing:

    Commerce Brewing was conceived as an option for small beverage producers to grow their brands without the needs for intensive capital investment. The founders realized the need for a facility that could service smaller to medium sized brewers and beverage operations without the hinderance of high minimum batch sizes, long contracts, and the rapidly increased points of distribution that can follow. Work began to prepare the facility in September 2019 and upgrades and improvements continue today.
