CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Sycamore Brewing expects to double production next year as it expands into more markets — including its first foray into South Carolina.
The popular Charlotte brewery expects to produce up 20,000 barrels in 2019. That’s more than double its projections for this year.
Those sales will be buoyed by distribution deals, which will give Sycamore a foothold in South Carolina and the opportunity to gain market share in Charlotte and surrounding counties, says Justin Brigham.
He and wife Sarah Brigham are behind Sycamore, which opened in 2014. That venture has grown from a South End taproom to include a 54,000-square-foot production facility in Charlotte’s North End.
“We’ve always viewed Sycamore as a brand for the Carolinas,” Justin says.
It has signed deals with five distributors in South Carolina to sell its beers and cider there. Sycamore also inked a deal locally to cover the Charlotte market.
