MillerCoors has officially opened the doors to its Blue Moon pilot brewery in downtown Denver.

The company said today that the River North site has an annual capacity of 10,000 barrels. The space also features a brew pub and kitchen. 

The company first announced plans to build the brewery in April last year. At the time the company said the River North site would produce less than 1% of the brand's total volumes. 

The new brewery is capable of producing two-barrel test brews.

"For the last 21 years, we have been experimenting with and creating new beers, and having a lot of fun with that process," said Blue Moon founder Keith Villa. "Now we're excited to bring that same creative spirit to our new, inspired space."

MillerCoors is a joint venture between Molson Coors and SABMiller. Following Anheuser-Busch InBev's acquisition of SABMiller, Molson Coors will take 100% ownership of the company. AB InBev's purchase of SAB is scheduled to close on 10 October
