MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewing Company is set to break ground Tuesday afternoon on its third brewery location at the former Pabst Distribution Center in downtown Milwaukee. 
The expansion signals the next chapter in Milwaukee Brewing's dynamic growth in the craft brewing industry.
Once complete, the 50,000-square foot brewery will include a tasting room, retail store, a rooftop patio-bar and dramatic event space overlooking the new Arena District. 
The additional space and new Wisconsin sourced machinery will allow Milwaukee Brewing Company to brew and package up to 50,000 barrels a year. 
The company will still continue to produce beer at its facility near 2nd  and Bruce.
The project aims to be in operations the first half of 2018.
