Carmel brewery Danny Boy expands into Michigan
Danny Boy Beer Works, a Carmel-based brewery with a location in the Village of West Clay, has announced it is expanding into Michigan.
Danny Boy is owned by Kevin Paul, of Carmel, who also owns the Brockway Pub and is a co-founder of Carmel-based software logistics firm Blue Horseshoe, and his brother Kris Paul.
The new 2,000-square-foot taproom will be located on the banks of the St. Clair River in St. Clair, Mich. Plans are underway for a new production facility as well.
“We are very excited to be able to introduce Danny Boy to new customers in Michigan,” Paul said. “We are looking forward to expanding our capacity to both brew and distribute Danny Boy beyond Indiana.”
The new production facility would be located in Michigan to help supply Danny Boy beers to restaurants and bars throughout McComb County and the “thumb” area north of Detroit. That facility could open by July of 2016 and would produce 7,000 to 10,000 barrels of beer in the first year and eventually increase to 40,000 barrels.
“It’s going to be a great place for St. Clair residents and visitors to relax and enjoy some great beers,” Paul said. “In addition to the great beers we are already brewing here in Carmel, we will be introducing three new unique recipes for St. Clair, including Warring Sun, White Knuckle Witte and Black Moon Lager.”
