The owners of the Brewery in Árskógsströnd north of Akureyri are expanding the factory by 200 square meters to be able to put up more tanks for brewing. This is an increase of 40%. The investment is close to 40 million ISK and production capacity will rise from 380 thousand liters to 550 thousand liters per year of the beer Kaldi.
The new space should be ready in July 2011. Agnes Sigurdardóttir, who founded the factory with her husband Ólafur Thröstur Ólafsson, says the expansion was necessary to meet demand from the state liquor store and restaurants.
According to Morgunbladid the brewery was founded in 2006. Currently seven people work at the brewery.
