Beltway Brewing Company Melds Operations and Accounting with VicinityBrew Brewery Management Software

Contract Brewer selects VicinityBrew software for Sterling, Virginia headquarters.

Marietta, GA, January 08, 2014 --( Vicinity Manufacturing is pleased to announce that Beltway Brewing Company has selected VicinityBrew craft brewery software to address the specific brewery management software needs of their company.

Beltway Brewing Company is headquartered in Sterling, Virginia. Beltway Brewing follows a slightly different business plan than the majority of startup breweries. Beltway Brewing Company has dedicated their efforts to contract brewing for other brands. Clients include breweries that have reached a max capacity and have an immediate need for further production. Breweries whose demand has exceeded their operational footprint are able to utilize Beltway Brewing’s facility to extend their production scale without committing to costly and time consuming expansion projects.

Additionally, Beltway Brewing is a resource for startup breweries who do not have the capital investment to build their brewery. This allows them to begin production and brand development while generating demand at a significantly lower risk than building their business alone from the ground up.

Beltway Brewing’s clients also include local restaurants. The brewery has partnered with a number of notable establishments to help them develop and produce their own private label brew.
