Pumpkin ale, new bottler at Tuckahoe

Tuckahoe Pumpkin Ale
A
freshly
uncrated bottler sits beside some fermenters at Tuckahoe Brewing; the bottler figures into a reworked approach to managing demand for Tuckahoe beers and better serving the northern Cape May County brewery's markets, which now include the west side of South Jersey.

Amanda Cardinali-2Earlier this year, Tuckahoe had planned to step up to a 15-barrel brewhouse, and the owners of the 20-month-old ale-maker explored taking on investors and examined some bank financing. But they never found terms via either route that were a suitable fit.

Thus a revised plan for the need-to-grow Tuckahoe: a mix of bank loan and self-financing that has meant the addition of the two new 3.5-barrel fermenters, a new grain mill to replace a troublesome one, plus the six-head 12-ounce bottle filler bought from Meheen Manufacturing in Pasco, Washington (about four hours southeast of Seattle). Co-owners Chris Konicki and Matt McDevitt will fly to Washington State next week for a crash course on how to operate the new bottler.
