Wander Brewing announces expansion

It was just about one year ago that we first visited Chad and Colleen Kuehl at Wander Brewing in Bellingham, which had yet to start brewing (see that post). Today we learned that the brewery recently expanded, adding three 40-barrel tanks to compliment their six existing 20-barrel tanks, essentially doubling production capabilities. They’ve also acquired more space (2,000 square feet) that will serve as the home of the Wander Brewing Barrel Project.

Here is the press release from Wander Brewing:

Wander Brewing Doubles Capacity, Adds Barrel Aging Facility

BELLINGHAM, WA. (March 12, 2015) Wander Brewing is excited to announce our recent installation of additional cellaring tanks to expand our beer offerings and distribution. Delivered from Marks Design& Metalworks in Vancouver, Washington, our new tanks are completely manufactured in the USA, and double the brewing capacity of our current 20-barrel brewhouse. The new tanks will allow us to consistently pursue new recipes, while still producing our core beers at a higher frequency. Wander Brewing has also acquired an additional 2,000-square feet of space to house our expanding ten-month-old Wander Brewing Barrel Project, which will soon have its first bottle release.

Although it seems like we opened our doors to the public just yesterday, we are also excited to announce that we are nearing our first anniversary. On Saturday, May 2nd, we would like you to join us at the Brew Hall, as we celebrate the milestones we have achieved in our first year.

Wander Brewing was founded by Colleen and Chad Kuehl in the spring of 2014. Our mission is to craft beers that balance tradition with innovation. Beers that seem familiar but leave a fresh impression of something new—kind of like seeing an old friend after years apart. We enjoy maintaining a continuously changing series of ales and lagers, and refuse to compromise on quality and taste as we move from one batch to the next.

Cheers to our sponsors, like...


  1. I think it’s fair to say that they are already the best brewery north of Seattle. They’ve done a great job, and Colleen and Chad are genuinely nice folks. Congrats to them!

  2. I agree with Skip, to say they are better than any brewery in Snoh & Skagit Counties is not a worthy claim after only 1 year.

    They are nice people, I met them at the Belgian Fest!
