Mark Anthony Brewing, maker of White Claw hard seltzer will build a new, 916,000 square foot production plant in Glendale, AZ. The $250 million facility is expected to be completed in a quick seven months in order to meet exploding demand..
At a time when there is excess capacity in the industry due to slowly declining sales of beer over the last decade, it is a statement of confidence in the hard seltzer category for a company to invest in new capacity.
