The 30,000 square-foot modern space includes a twenty-barrel brewing system, several forty- and sixty-barrel fermenters used to supply the 400-seat restaurant and tap room, and thirty tap lines.

In addition to their trademark Blue Moon beer, they intend to have up to 24 different types of beers on tap, all brewed in this facility. Guests to the new brewery can walk in, grab a beer at the bar, and take a self-guided tour around the open brew house.
