Joel VandenBrink, founder of Two Beers.

Things at Two Beers —the craft operation that began in a basement then expanded to cushier digs in SoDo before rolling out canned 12-ouncers—show no sign of slowing.

In mid-November the beer maker will unveil a facility capping out at 4,800 square feet—twice the size of its current warehouse. The expanded quarters will make way for a full-on tasting room and allow founder Joel VandenBrink to increase output of brews like Evolutionary IPA and Immersion Amber (a fine one for Thanksgiving, by the way). Annual production will double from 1000 gallons to 2000 gallons, VandenBrink told Seattle Weekly. [ UPDATE 10/25: A rep for Two Beers said SW ’s numbers are incorrect: "At the end of 2010, we were at 1100 barrels (34,100 gallons). Projected production by the end of 2011 is 3500 barrels (108,500 gallons)." ]

On the twelfth of that month Two Beers will christen the facility and celebrate its fourth anniversary with a party from 2 to 7pm. Four dollar pints will be on offer, as will a special anniversary ale, a portion of whose sales will benefit the Washington Trails Alliance.

Meantime, take a tour of the Two Beers brewery as well as fellow SoDo brewmasters Schooner EXACT and Epic Ales.
