Great Basin Brewing Co. Grows Beyond Nevada

Posted: Updated:
A local craft brewery is taking some of their flagship beers on the road, thanks to some big upgrades.

Last year, the locally-owned Great Basin Brewing Co. installed a new bottling system. Now they are churning out ten 6-packs every minute. 

They are also the home to the silver state's three largest fermentation tanks.

That extra muscle has made it possible to send some local favorites, like "Icky," over the state line.

Great Basin says they are now equipped to ship more than 5 million bottles every year, to stores and restaurants in California and Oregon.

The company's beers are already available at more than 400 venues across Nevada.

Great Basin owner and brew-master Tom Young calls the new expansion part of his "lifelong dream."
