Blue & Gray adding brewing capacity

The Blue & Gray Brewing Co. will soon be able to brew more beer. The local brewery in Spotsylvania County’s Bowman Center has purchased two new 20-barrel fermenters to add to the three it already had, said brewery President Jeff Fitzpatrick. That increases the brewery’s capacity from 60 barrels to 100 barrels. The fermenters arrived this week from San Diego and will be installed and operational within a month. Fitzpatrick said the brewery, which also runs the Lee’s Retreat brewpub at the facility, sees an opportunity to grow and hence made the investment. He believes J.F. Fink Inc.’s decision last year to buy the rights to distribute Blue & Gray will help business.
