3 Daughters Brewing will expand with a new warehouse in St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG — 3 Daughters Brewing announced Wednesday that it will expand its operations by adding 10,000 square feet of warehouse space.

The facility will have six new fermenters and two additional tanks, which the company said will boost its capacity fivefold.

Owner Leigh Harting said Wednesday that the additional space will be used to build a new revenue stream: contract brewing, in which the brewery will make beer for brewers who don't have their own facilities.

"It'll definitely be a portion of our business, but it's not our core model," she said. "I think it absolutely is a place where there is a lot of (opportunity for) expansion."

Her husband and co-owner, Mike Harting, said they want to ensure the brewery could meet its "rapidly growing demand" to the tune of 60,000 barrels per year.

The warehouse will be built at the brewery's location on 22nd Street S in St. Petersburg, in the place of some parking spaces. The company will add valet parking on weekends and plans to acquire more on-site parking for customers. A launch party is set for May 7.

3 Daughters' beer is sold in Florida, Georgia and the Bahamas and is on the shelves at Fresh Market, Sam's Club and Winn-Dixie. The brewery was founded in 2012 and now has 43 employees.
