Petaluma-based Lagunitas Brewing Co. has big plans for its new brewery under construction in Azusa.
How big? 178,000-square-feet worth, that’s how big.
Initially, the brewery will pump out 420,000 barrels of beer annually, but will eventually ramp up to — cue Doctor Evil voice — one million barrels. The brewery will distribute throughout the Southwest, and perhaps, eventually into Mexico.
It’s not all about the A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ and the Hop Stoopid, however. The new facility will be similar to its Chicago brewery, which opened a little over a year ago. It houses a taproom, restaurant and music venue.
