Sierra Nevada Considers Virginia Site

The Roanoke Times is reporting that Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is considering a site in Virginia for an East Coast facility.
California-based craft beer brewer Sierra Nevada has a site in the Roanoke/New River Valley area on its short list of places for a $75 million to $100 million East Coast brewery.

The site is No. 2 on the company’s list, behind one in Blount County, Tenn., near Knoxville, said Bill Manley, communications director for the brewer.

Sierra Nevada isn’t fully committed to the expansion yet, Manley said, and will make a decision on whether to go forward – and where – within a month or so.
The article notes that the new facility would include brewing and bottling facilities, along with a restaurant and brew pub.

Update: There is now a Facebook group "Bring Sierra Nevada to Southwest Virginia" dedicated to the cause.

  1. Come to Papa! The thought of having a SN brewpub approximately an hour from my house makes me salivate...

    A Tumbler or Torpedo straight from the tap at the brewery?! Yes, please!
