Construction of the Ravenous Pig Brewing Co. is nearly complete and the first brew batch is expected to wet the collective whistles of beerhounds in early August.
The 3,000-square-foot brewery adjacent to the Ravenous Pig features a 15-barrel brewhouse system with six 30-barrel fermenters, tripling the size of the current five-barrel system inside the restaurant.
Ravenous Pig owner James Petrakis, not a hoser.
Larry Foor, the Pig's brewmaster, will lead brewing operations at the facility, which will also supply the Cask & Larder-branded beers for the namesake restaurant inside Terminal B at the Orlando International Airport.
As far as the existing brewery inside the Ravenous Pig is concerned, Foor will use it to produce small-batch special releases which will be exclusively served in the restaurant's taproom.
