Fire officials in Middlebury say at least one fermentation tank exploded Monday morning inside the Otter Creek Brewery.

They say that all the people who were in the building at the time of the explosion have been accounted for and that there are no gases escaping from the facility.

While fire officials continued to investigate the explosion, Otter Creek management posted a message on the company Facebook page saying it expects full operations to resume this week and beer aficionados need not worry - there is adequate supply on-hand with area wholesalers and retailers.
