Track 7 expanding to Natomas, looking to ‘push creative boundaries’ with beer

Track 7 is expanding.

The Sacramento brewing company announced Tuesday that it has leased a 35,000-square-foot property in Natomas, which it plans to use as its “manufacturing, packaging and distribution facility,” according to a press release. The new brewery will also house a tasting room and offices.

The Natomas space will allow for increased production and enable Track 7, launched in 2011, to serve new markets, owners said.

While the company is set to brew approximately 2,800 barrels of beer this year, “the Natomas facility will give us an opening capacity of about 8,000 barrels of beer,” said co-owner Geoff Scott, helping the brewery to grow business in the East Bay, the Central Valley and beyond.

Track 7’s Curtis Park facility will continue operating, but with a new focus.

“Our current production system will be re-purposed for pilot batching and sour beer production,” said co-owner Ryan Graham. “One of the main reasons for expanding at a different location was to separate production of traditionally fermented products from wild and sour beers that we also want to make. Now we can take more risks and start pushing our creative boundaries.”

The brewing company hopes to open its new facility by December 2014. It’s located at 826 Professor Lane, Suite 100, Sacramento.
