Octopi Brewing is unveiling new facilities in Waunakee as part of a $62 million development that makes it the first solar and battery storage project in Dane County, brewery founder Isaac Showaki said.
It’s a massive undertaking for the startup. Showaki founded the company in 2015 — when it had just six employees — and credits local lenders, state agencies and community banks for investing in its future.
“It feels amazing,” Showaki said. “We want to grow with our community, we want to be a key player in Waunakee. We’re very blessed to be here.”
