Sweeney’s firm West Coast Brewing yesterday settled the purchase of Westport’s Miners Brewery, now named West Coast Brewery. Sweeney wants the firm to become the nation’s No. 3 brewer, and it is completing a prospectus which, once approved, will open the door for more shareholders.
He expects to double brewery production within a year and more than treble staff as production increases. He plans to raise $3 million to fund his plans.
