“All growth in 2009 was in existing markets, which is very satisfying for us,” said Brock Wagner, founder of Saint Arnold. “We have not added any new territories as we continue to focus on brewing for our local markets and communities. We would love to attain all of our production goals without ever shipping outside of Texas. We also benefited from our distributor switch in 2009.”
Year Production Growth 2009 25,710 barrels 13% 2008 22,749 barrels 28% 2007 17,811 barrels 30% 2006 13,638 barrels 25% 2005 10,946 barrels 20%
Production has not yet begun at Saint Arnold's new facility north of downtown. Once brewing begins, the initial capacity of 40,000 barrels can be expanded up to 120,000 barrels per year.
