We were so thrilled to be the Milwaukee Event Photographer selected to capture this historic ground breaking in our city! It’s an exciting day when the Mayor and the Governor appear together, shovel in hand, to break ground on a new building. It’s not hard to deduce this building will be an important one. In this case, it would be hard to overestimate the importance of this building. Leinenkugel’s is erecting a building that will allow them to increase production tenfold!
“This is more investment, more jobs, more beer. What can be more exciting here in Wisconsin than all of those things? But this is yet another sign that Milwaukee, particularly downtown Milwaukee, is taking off,” said Gov. Scott Walker.
The new expansion will include a 119,338 square-foot packaging and warehouse facility. Currently the company brews 25,000 barrels a year. After this addition they will be able to increase that to 250,000 barrels a year.
“For me this is a win-win situation,” said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
Bringing jobs to Milwaukee is win enough for the Mayor, but Barrett also believes this will bring jobs to those living in this North side neighborhood.
“I’m confident that they will be. They understand the importance and our conversations with them they emphasize that they want to be good partners with this neighborhood as well and this is a neighborhood where people need jobs so I’m hopeful,” Barrett said.
