Molson Coors owns Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing and produces the brewer's popular Summer Shandy at the small Milwaukee brewery that is slated to be expanded. After that, other brands will be produced there.
MillerCoors, the U.S. division of Denver-based Molson Coors (NYSE: TAP), announced its plans in February.
It plans to demolish a 110,000-square-foot industrial building it owns next to the Leinenkugel building. In its place, MillerCoors will build a 119,328-square-foot packaging and warehousing facility.
Construction plans also include 11,360 square feet of new space on the existing brewhouse building, mostly for storing new brewing tanks, according to plans filed with the city.
