MIDDLETON, Wis. (AP) _ Capital Brewery says it will begin construction this summer on a new $11 million facility in Sauk City.

The new brewery is expected to eventually produce nearly 10 times the beer Capital Brewery makes in Middleton. Production manager Brian Destree says the new brewery will have a starting capacity of about 100,000 barrels. He says fermenting tanks could be added in the future bringing production up to 250,000 barrels.

The new brewery will have company offices, a tasting room and an outdoor  entertainment venue. Destree says it will be the ``heart and soul'' of Capital's operations.

Capital plans to end its arrangement with Stevens Point Brewing. Currently, Capital beer is shipped from Middleton to Stevens Point for packaging. Some Capital beer is also produced at Point Brewing.
