The owners of Brooklyn Brewery plan to construct a $70 million facility on Staten Island spanning 200,000 square feet.

The advisory board New York City Regional Economic Development Council is working with the brewery to find a 20- to 25-acre site on the western shore of the borough. The manufacturing center would help Brooklyn Brewery ramp up its beer production for overseas buyers. The site would have to be close to the ports and with direct rail access. They are also considering locations in the mid-Hudson region, Crain’s reported.

The brewery has been based in Williamsburg, at 79 North 11th Street, for 27 years. The five-building warehouse separate from the headquarters was sold in 2011 for $16 million, as previously reported.

A site for the new plant is expected to be selected later this year; the opening is slated for late 2017.

“With the support of state and city development agencies, this potential project demonstrates that New York can be a hospitable place for successful manufacturers and exporters,” Eric Ottaway, general manager, told Crain’s. [Crain’s]Mark Maurer
