Plans to expand Capital Brewery in Middleton appear to have fallen by the wayside as multiple media outlets early this week reported that the business plans to build an $11 million, 50,000 square foot production facility in Sauk City.

 
Former Capital Brewery general manager Carl Nolen had been in talks with city leaders in Middleton about expanding the brewery here. But after Nolen was let go by the brewery’s board, and longtime, iconic brewmaster Kirby Nelson departed to found the Wisconsin Brewing Company with Nolen in Verona, negotiations with the city languished. 
 
The city at one point considered providing Tax Increment Financing to ensure that the expansion occurred here.
