Brewing Facility Technology, upgrades, Maintenance and Building for the Future

Headquartered in La Crosse, Wisconsin, City Brewing Company is equipped with state-of-the-art brewing technology and is the central hub for their growing operations, recipe development, brewing, blending, packaging and distribution.

The Brewhouse is capable of producing 16 brews per day at 1,100 barrels each for an annual capacity of nearly seven million barrels of beer, with brewing sites in La Crosse, Wisconsin; Latrobe, Pennsylvania; Irwindale, California; and Memphis, Tennessee. With a packaging capacity of over 50 million cases, City Brewery is well-positioned to serve clients as one of the largest beverage producers nationwide.

Industrial maintenance and upgrades are needed from time to time to ensure the highest quality standards. This is key to the success of City Brewing Company.

C.D. Smith Construction has offered construction management expertise on projects from remodeling storage facilities to laying fuel pads for C02 tanks and parking lot upgrades.

Collaboration on smaller projects has opened the door to larger opportunities. City Brewing Company hired C.D. Smith to build a 1,590 SF Silo Ally at the La Crosse facility to be operational in the fall of 2023. 

“Having a dedicated construction team that understands industrial construction like 
C.D. Smith enables us to focus on our work.” -Marcus Klug, Project Engineer, City Brewing

Building for the Future: LEED® and WELL™ Certifications in Construction | 01.04.2023 BENEATH THE HARD HAT®

LEED® and WELL™ Certifications + Industrial Construction: Beyond the obvious environmental benefits, LEED certification can lead to significant cost savings. Energy-efficient buildings use less power, reducing utility bills. Water-saving measures can further cut costs and demonstrate your commitment to responsible resource management. LEED can also boost employee productivity and reduce absenteeism. Studies have shown that employees in green buildings report higher levels of satisfaction and cognitive performance. A healthier, happier workforce is a more productive workforce, leading to increased output and profitability.
