Titletown Brewing, a Wisconsin-based brewery, has officially started the construction on its brewery’s Green Bay expansion project.

To be built at the old Larson Canning factory in the Broadway District, the expanded operations will allow the company to quadruple its beer production.

According to Titletown Brewing CEO Jim Kratowicz, the project will allow them to expand their beer sales statewide, and beyond.

Kratowicz said they plan to start brewing beer in the renovated facility, in September.

The first phase of the $3.5m project will see the renovated facility house a tasting room, retail space on the first floor, offices on the second, rooftop beer garden and space for events.

Titletown Brewing owner Brent Weycker said they went into the plan with Titletown being a tap room, and a new brewery.

"And from there, it’s kind of expected where people have been approaching us for offices downtown," Weycker added.

Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau president Brad Toll said the building will provide additional attractions for conventions and serve as a tourist destination.

"The department of tourism – on their website – has microbrewery tours, places you can visit in Wisconsin. We look forward to marketing this as a place for craft brewing fans," Toll added.

The second phase of the project will include addition of apartments at the site.
