VERONA, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's newest brewery plans to become the state's craft beermaker by far. 

The Wisconsin Brewing Company in Verona is scheduled to open its tap room on Friday. 

Four types of beer will be sold in the city's bars and restaurants at first. 

Next week, Wisconsin Brewing plans to debut its product in stores -- as well as taverns and eateries in 22 counties. 

Craft beers are booming, while the nation's largest brewers are seeing their sales drop. Craft breweries throughout the U.S. sold just over 13 million barrels last year -- a whopping 15 percent increase from the year before. 

Eventually, Wisconsin Brewing hopes to boost its annual output to a quarter-million barrels a year -- twice of what the state's largest craft brewer produces now.
