Peace Tree Brewing Company in Knoxville will get their brewing equipment installed soon, and Joe Kesteloot brewmaster at Peace Tree, says once everything’s hooked up, they expect to be able to produce 3,000 barrels of beer a year, which is almost 100,000 gallons. The brewing equipment includes brew tanks, a mash ton, a brew kettle, 4 fermenters, and 2 bright beer tanks. The size of these tanks range from 10 ½ feet to 14 feet high and are roughly 6 feet across in diameter. Kesteloot says the equipment will come on Friday and they hope to begin packaging beer sometime in January.
