Sierra Nevada Brewery Not Coming to Virginia

Last spring, there was news that Sierra Nevada Brewing Company was considering a site in Virginia for its east coast brewery. Alas, it is not to be. According to Virginia Business, the Montgomery County business park is not destined to be the new home of the brewery.
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. won’t confirm the news, but Montgomery County will not be the home of the California craft brewer’s first East Coast brewery.

“Montgomery County is no longer under consideration for the Sierra Nevada project,” county spokeswoman Ruth Richey said in an Oct. 27 email.

Online outdoor retailer announced Oct. 11 that it plans to build a distribution center in the county’s Falling Branch Industrial Park. It turns out that was the site that Sierra Nevada was considering.
Although east coast sites in Tennessee and North Carolina have also been mentioned, the article speculates that the brewery may not build in the east after all.
