BOULDER - Twisted Pine Brewing Co., a craft brewer based in Boulder, will receive up to $45,000 in tax and fee rebates from the city for the expansion of its tap room and brewery at 3201 Walnut St.

The rebates helped defray the costs of an expansion that occurred last year, Twisted Pine president Bob Baile said. The company expanded from 6,000 to 12,000 square feet, installed a canning line and increased its brewing capacity by about 40 percent, he said. The new production capacity has allowed the company to expand into additional states.

It also expanded its taproom from 800 to 1,500 square feet, which gives it space for up to 75 patrons. The extra seats have boosted revenue, and helped Twisted Pine connect with more drinkers, Baile said.

"It's really nice, because it's been extremely popular," Baile said. "It gives us the ability to reach the public in a completely different way."

It is the third rebate approved by the city for the most recenty budget cycle. The city allocated $350,000 to the program in the 2012 budget, according to a press release. The city is processing an additional seven applications.
