Green Flash Announces Expansion to Lincoln, Nebraska
Green Flash Brewing Co. has been thriving and looks to continue their growth with some great news. The local brewing company just announced their latest expansion to Lincoln, Nebraska. This comes less than a year after opening their doors to their second brewery on the East Coast. The expansion into the Midwest will feature both a tasting room and restaurant.
Green Flash purchased a 10,000 square foot production facility, tasting room, and restaurant within the state capital. They’ll be joining Lincoln’s burgeoning craft beer community. Since the new brewery purchase was intact, Green Flash expects doors to open by the end of this year. When that day comes, Green Flash will be able to offer fresh beer at regional prices in the Midwest. They’ll also be focusing on the consumer connection in their Lincoln tasting room.
This purchase reveals Green Flash’s long-term strategy to increase their strength as a national brand by establishing regional footholds in key cities across the nation.
“We hope to become a local favorite in our new Nebraska home,” states Mike Hinkley, Co-Founder of Green Flash Brewing Co. “And we’re excited to be closer to our fans across the Midwest. We’ll be sending them fresher Green Flash beer, and hope they will visit us in Lincoln.”
Lucky for Green Flash, this turn-key space already includes first class brewing, tasting room and restaurant equipment. The facility will emply 20+ locals for both front and back of house roles, as well as brewing positions.
This venture is extremely significant as it’s their first full-scale restaurant venture. Approximately 2,000 square feet of the space will be dedicated to food and beer services for about 100 patrons at a time. The menu will include beer pairing suggestions, in addition to, well-executed, simple dishes with fresh and seasonal ingredients. Important to note, the tasting room and the restaurant location will cater to the needs of the bustling downtown business district and is within walking distance to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
“We will strive to offer the best possible guest experience and will cater to the community that surrounds us,” says Dave Adams, Vice President of Retail Operations for Green Flash Brewing Co. “This includes A/V provisions for Huskers sports during the season, allowing those in the immediate area to enjoy fresh Green Flash and Alpine beer both on and off premise.”
From a production standpoint, the new brewery will operate with a 10,000 BBL annual capacity under the direction of Brewmaster, Erik Jensen.
In Nebraska, they will focus on brewing both Green Flash and Alpine beers to help increase the supply of fresh, locally priced beer to the region. Not to mention, the brewing company will be celebrating their 15 year anniversary this fall. They’re also already available in ALL 50 states and select international markets. Cool, right?
