Cote Crane & Rigging workers installed brewing equipment at Lone Pine Brewing Co.’s Gorham facility on Tuesday.

The three-year-old brewery added four fermenters and a conditioning tank, increasing its capacity from producing 7,500 barrels of beer in 2018 to a projected 12,500 barrels this year.

Currently there are more than 30 barrels aging, with the first of these poised for a spring/summer release.
