Virginia-based Devils Backbone Brewing has unveils its plans to expand the production capacity to 100,000 barrels of beer per year.

The move by the brewery is aimed at meeting the growing regional demand, after it began bottling and kegging products for regional distribution in 2012.

The brewery, which currently produces its beer on a 30-barrel brewing system, will install a 120-barrel brewhouse in the next 18 months to expand beer production.

Devils Backbone Brewing chief operating officer Hayes Humphreys was quoted by Brewbound as saying that the expansion project will increase Devils Backbone’s theoretical production capacity to about 100,000 barrels and the brewery is capable of being scaled to 275,000 barrels.

"We intend to fill that capacity. We’re going to be a pretty big player on the east coast," Humphreys added.

The company recently added a new 18,000ft² packaging hall and installed a new canning line.

Humphreys said in 2013, the company’s volume grew 150% to 25,000 barrels and in 2014, it expects that number to reach 45,000.

Devils Backbone currently distributes its beers in home state of Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, with plans to foray into West Virginia in 2014.

Some of the beers produced by Devils include Eight Point IPA, Eight Point Bottle, Vienna Lager Bottle, Gold Leaf Lager, The Congo Pale Ale and others.
