WILLIAMSBURG - The Brooklyn Brewery has announced it is planning to move? next door.

The brewery says it is in need of an expansion to keep up with the growing demand. Originally it was looking to leave the borough entirely, citing the high price of real estate in the area, but thanks to the declining prices, has decided to stay very close to where it started.

The brewery, known for high-quality and specialty brews, says that it hopes by expanding it can double its sales.

Merchants and residents couldn't be happier to see the brewery doing so well.

The brewery also announced that along with the move, it will be adding 20 more jobs.
