My name is Keith Carvalho and I am the founder and brewer at Troy City Brewing. This journey started 12 years ago when my brother in law asked me to join him and brew a batch of home brew in his garage. Ever since that day, I knew I found a hobby I would enjoy. My passion for the craft continued to grow. Learning about the craft of brewing and perfecting my favorite recipes was my main goal. For the past 3 years I have been working hard to make my dream a reality. Our goal is to self-distribute our beer to local bars and restaurants in Fall River to start with future growth in the plan. I believe starting small (@160 gallons a week) will give us the freedom to brew many different styles and allow us to be creative and different. So here is were we stand with this project as of today. Our electric brew system is a 2.5 bbl (80 gallon) capacity unit that is ready to be moved in our commercial space. Fermentation is five temperature controlled plastic fermenters ranging from 1 bbl to 2.5 bbl. We still need to purchase 4 of the 5 fermenters. We have a lease and are going through the planning stage of construction. Our application with the TTB will be submitted late August. Bringing a brewery to FR is something I feel passionate about. Being a local all my life brings a certain pride to the name Troy City. Please help us by donating and wearing our gear. Like our Facebook page Troy City Brewing for updates and upcoming events. Thank you for your support 

 

Risks and challenges

We are at the point were this project is ready for the next step. The building is in the proper zoning and the city has been informed of our mission. I am totally confident that we will be self distributing by late 2017 under a farmers brewer license.
