Boulevard Brewing Co. is exploring a new facility in Kansas City that would allow more canned offerings.
Boulevard will appear before the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority on Thursday to seek approval of revenue bonds for a planned $10 million, 24,000-square-foot packaging facility that would bring the brewing company’s canning operations to Kansas City.
“Right now, we’re severely constrained in what we can do because we’re doing it all off site,” Boulevard president Jeff Krum said Wednesday.
Krum said work on establishing a canning facility is early and includes lining up financing and approval by the Planned Industrial Expansion Authority. If it all works out, it would be the third phase of an expansion of its Kansas City headquarters that started in 2010 with a brewhouse addition and in 2014 with Cellar Five, a facility that increased the brewery’s beer-making capacity.
Expanding canned beer offerings would meet growing demand among craft beer drinkers.
