Much speculation surrounds the location of Stone Brewing Co.'s next stateside brewery. After soliciting proposals for a new East Coast-centered production facility and a Stone World Bistro & Gardens, the company has yet to divulge which cities are officially in the running, but the Richmond Times-Dispatch says the Virginia state capital is one of the finalists, reporting that City Hall sources shared that "measures were being brought forward to clear a path for the Stone Brewing project."
The article also speculates that Norfolk, VA and Columbus, OH may be contenders. If the Virginia intel is true, Stone Brewing Co., which recently announced its ambitious new European project, won't be the first San Diego brewery to expand there; Green Flash Brewing Co. has a facility currently under construction in Virginia Beach, VA.
Stone Brewing Co.'s Sabrina LoPiccolo says the company should be identifying the location in the next 30 to 60 days.
