According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch...
After an all-out push that included the installation of a kegerator in Virginia's Executive Mansion, state and local officials are expected to announce Thursday that Stone Brewing Co. has chosen Richmond for a coveted new production facility, its first in the eastern United States.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe is scheduled to make an economic development announcement Thursday at the mansion, and multiple sources confirmed that the announcement will focus on Stone.
The Richmond City Council recently created an exemption to the light industrial zoning rules to help smooth the way for the California craft brewery. The Richmond location is expected to include the popular restaurant and retail attractions seen at existing Stone World Bistro & Gardens locations. So, yea, it's a big thing.
