CA city water supply, wastewater system ideal for brewery business

Sponsored by

FAIRFIELD, CA, Oct. 31, 2013 -- The city of Fairfield, Calif., has been identified as an ideal location to expand the craft brewery business with its ample water supply, high-capacity wastewater system and available properties with room to grow.

"Fairfield's wastewater treatment plant can handle the high-strength waste that occurs in a brewery's operation, so brew masters do not have to concern themselves with treating the wastewater," said Talyon Sortor, assistant general manager of the Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District. "The district's treatment plant was specifically designed to handle brewery waste, because it was built to support the Anheuser-Busch facility located here."

Felix Riesenberg, Fairfield's assistant Public Works director, also commented, "We are an excellent location for a craft brewery because of our robust and reliable, high-quality-water, which is critical to the brewing process. The city has done a tremendous job of water supply planning, resulting in sufficient water supplies to reliably deliver water, even in the event of a multiple-year drought scenario."

Numerous microbreweries seeking to expand are currently in talks with Fairfield's economic development department. Likewise, the city government is accessible, easy to work with and expedites building permits.

Recently, Heretic Brewing Company moved its operations from Pittsburg, Calif., to an 8,500-square foot Fairfield location at 1052 Horizon Drive. Its facility contains a brewery, tasting room and lab space. There are plans to expand in March 2014 to 16,000 square feet in order to conduct more barrel aging and further increase production.

"Fairfield's economic development team took the time to visit our business to learn about our needs," said Heretic's Jamil Zainasheff. "In addition, Fairfield has great water and a good supply of buildings appropriate for breweries."

Fairfield's high-quality water and ample supply, as well as its high sewer capacity attract food and beverage manufacturers to the city including Anheuser-Busch InBev, Jelly Belly Candy Company, Guittard Chocolates, Frank-Lin Distillers, Sunnyside Farms, and Calbee America.
