New lighting system, campus expansion part of Two Roads’ growth

At Two Roads Brewing Co., it’s all about trying new things. And that doesn’t just apply to its craft beers.

The attitude is behind the company’s two latest projects: the installation of a new LED lighting system and plans to build a $12 million brewery next to its present facility on Stratford Avenue.

The company finalized the purchase of the 2.5 acres next door earlier this year for $550,000. The property had been the remaining piece of land owned by the U.S. Baird Co. that was not under Two Roads’ ownership.

The craft brewery purchased the main industrial site for $2.85 million in 2012. “We’re continuing to grow here,” said Brad Hittle, one of the co-founders. “The Two Roads brand is growing nicely so we need to expand for the capacity to make the beer for the demand we’re seeing.”
