DENVER (CBS4) – A sign of just how healthy the craft beer business is in Denver was visible Thursday morning outside Breckenridge Brewery.

Crews on Thursday replaced one of the finishing tanks they use in their brewing process.

They swapped out a 100 barrel tank for a 200 barrel tank, and had to go through the roof to install it.

The move Thursday followed their recent effort of putting in larger fermenting tanks, something the brewery will do even more of in March. It’s all to keep up with customer demand.

“We make a great variety of beer, from the basic amber ale … to some really hoppy and interesting beers, and some barrel-aged beers as well,” said brewery spokeswoman Terry Usry.

There are 31 gallons in a barrel, meaning that a 200 barrel finishing tank holds 6,200 gallons — or slightly more than 66,000 bottles of beer.

    I’m so saddened,.Brian. You didn’t maange to work in a photoshopped image of Al Franken.What disappoints me most is that I read your credits, and it is not you who is making the graphics on this website. There are others doing them. You’ve got a little dirty tricks shop going on here. The implication is that you are getting money from someplace. Clearly, this site is not supporting itself. And I don’t think the money’s from Soros.What so saddens me is that you’re riding this Irish thing. It’s not like the Irish have ever been very prosperous under English rule. I dunno. Is it that the Irish supported the Nazis against Britain? Does that make your heart sing? I have no love either for the English, but my allegiance is with the working class, Irish, American, British, or German.Where are yours?
