Pilot Project Brewing, the brewery incubator based in Chicago has purchased the closed Milwaukee Brewing Co. brewery in Milwaukee. The 43,000-square-foot space includes a production facility, taproom and event space.
Pilot Project Brewing acts as a launch pad for start-up breweries, offering assistance with recipes, production scaling, business development, marketing and distribution. Since it began in 2019, Pilot Project Brewing has launched 13 start-up breweries, including Luna Bay Hard Kombucha, ROVM Hard Kombucha, Funkytown Brewery, Azadi Brewing and others.
The expansion to Milwaukee will help the company grow so it can support its current brands, and add more brands in the future. The new facility is expected to open later this fall, with food and four or five brewers already involved in the Pilot Project operation.
