Samuel Adams Brewery is continuing to invest in its capability and capacity at its Breinigsville facility and will be adding several tanks for aging and fermentation processes, said Jessica Paar, spokeswoman for The Boston Beer Co., the maker of Sam Adams.

Paar said Boston Beer Co. is making these investments to keep up with the brewing demands as the company introduces new, innovative styles of beer.

While Paar said the company does not disclose specifics regarding capital investment projects on an individual brewery basis, she said the company's latest earnings release showed that capital spending would be between $100 million and $120 million, which includes investments in the company's breweries.

In its earnings statement, the company said full-year 2014 capital spending is now estimated to be between $140 million and $180 million, an increase in the range from the previously released estimate of $100 million to $130 million.

In 2013, the company added more than 70 new positions at the Breinigsville site, Paar said. An undisclosed number of jobs will be added with the 2014 expansion.

"We're proud to be an employer in Pennsylvania and that our growth has enabled us to continue to hire," Paar said.

Available positions are posted on its website at www.samueladams.com.
