A local-born brewery just two years into its latest expansion has new plans in the works. Night Shift Brewing could double its production in the next year, add two cans to its lineup, and expand the taproom at its 87 Santilli Hwy. headquarters, according to the Boston Business Journal.
An expansion of the brewery's taproom has been a goal since last fall. An additional 1,000 square feet of space will be added this summer as the brewery works through its new phase of development.
Night Shift has also purchased a $250,000 canning system, which means the brewery can add two cans to its existing lineup of seven. When it first opened at Santilli Highway, Night Shift operated on a 20-barrel brewing system in a space that allowed room for growth, and that's exactly what it will have in the next year with some additional fermenters, BBJ reported. Night Shift plans to hire more employees to accommodate this expansion.
Michael Oxton, Mike O'Mara, and Rob Burns make up the trio behind Night Shift, which started with the three brewing beer in their spare time. Later, they opened a space at 3 Charlton St. in Everett before opening the current location.
