PUNTA GORDA — After months of work, Fat Point Brewing’s production operation is now 100 percent up and running.

The new system went on line Wednesday, and the two founders are working to come up with locations where their beer will be available. Beer produced with a smaller system has been available at Opus in downtown Punta Gorda for several weeks. However the beer-brewing duo, Bill Frazer and Duncan Scarry, plan to distribute their beer to 10 to 12 locations in Charlotte County, 20 to 25 locations in Lee County, and 20 to 25 locations in the Sarasota/Manatee county area by early to mid-August, Frazer said.
