Anheuser-Busch Brewery Projects

Fairfield, California

To produce a new high-end craft product, Anheuser-Busch needed a 1.1-million-square-foot process addition.

Haskell has a long-standing relationship with Anheuser-Busch (AB InBev) that spans multiple projects throughout North America. When the company decided to expand their Fairfield, California, brewery to include a 1.1 million square foot high-end process line for new craft beer products, they knew we were the perfect partner to execute the job.

Haskell designed and installed new process systems without disrupting our client’s production.

AB InBev’s Fairfield facility is responsible for brewing 20 different products, so it was critical that construction and installation on the new expansion did not disrupt their existing production.

Our project included the addition of new fermenting tanks and the extension of their clean-in-place (CIP) systems; beer transfer modules; yeast transfer modules and collection; CIP distribution modules; and Wort transfer systems. We also extended the brewery’s field piping to connect existing systems; centrifuges; carbon dioxide collection and processing; dry-ingredient addition; and programming. The project also included installing owner-furnished brewing equipment, providing instrumentation procurement and installation, and commissioning of all the new systems and processes.

Another successful brewery expansion project was completed for AB InBev.

From their flagship brewery in St. Louis to facilities in Jacksonville, Florida; Houston, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; Los Angeles, California; Newark, New Jersey; Williamsburg, Virginia; and several others, the Haskell and AB InBev teams continue to achieve project success through collaborative efforts on both sides. We enjoyed the opportunity to help the Fairfield brewery add new craft brands to AB InBev’s collection of great beers.
