The Newburyport Brewing Co. said Monday that it has raised $1 million in private capital to help build a small brewery in Newburyport.
The plan is to begin marketing several varieties of beer early next year, including Newburyport Pale Ale, Plum Island Belgian White, and Green Head IPA, the company said.
The roughly 8,300-square-foot-facility will be outfitted with a three-vessel, 20-barrel brew house and tank farm, automated can and keg packaging lines, a cold storage area, and a 2,000-square-foot tasting room with music stage, seating, and bar, the company said.
‘‘By building an authentic brick and mortar production brewery, we are demonstrating our commitment to consumers and retailers who expect great tasting, locally produced craft beer,’’ Bill Fisher, company cofounder and chief operating officer, said in a statement.
‘‘Craft beer does very well in New England and we are excited to add to this region’s growth.’’
