Burlington Beer Company began operations in 2010 as a 10-barrel microbrewery. As demand for its quality products grew, so did the company. With financing assistance from VEDA and the National Bank of Middlebury, Burlington Beer Company is expanding to become a 30-barrel operation.

The expansion project will enable the company to meet local demand for its popular draft beer and expand its canned beer market. Purchase of a new canning line will allow the company to adopt a more flexible brew schedule, and increased storage capacity will free up space for its brew house.

Within three years of the expansion project, Burlington Beer Company expects to increase employment from eight to twenty-five positions.
