Grist House Craft Brewery, which currently has a brewery in Millvale, will open a second location in Collier which will become its main production facility, house a large taproom and retail space along with an extensive barrel aging program.

The Grist House Craft Brewery is opening a production facility and taproom at a former missile command center in Collier.

The 55,000-square foot building in Collier is part of the business’ expansion, which includes retail space.

“The building once served as the Nike Missile Command Center during the Cold War and will become our main production facility,” the Grist House wrote on its website.

The Grist House’s Millvale location on Sherman Street will remain in operation.

“Before you get too worried, our Millvale location is not going anywhere and will continue to operate as our home in the city,” the website said. “Gradually we will be moving the majority of operations to this new building, but will always have our home in Millvale.”

Beers available include Black in the USSR, Dark Shaman, Kolsch On the Run and Undead Viking for this dog-friendly brewery.

“This project is going to be a long one, and we are not prepared to announce a timeline at this point, but we simply couldn’t hold onto this secret anymore,” the brewer wrote on its website.

The command center was built in 1957 and became an operational missile command center in 1960. Grist ownership plans to preserve original equipment.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
