Stone Brewing Co. Looks To Build East

Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA) is looking to build another production brewery on the east coast, much like New Belgium, Sierra Nevada, and Oskar Blue have done.  (Note: Lagunitas is about to open their second facility in Chicago, IL)

The location has not been determined yet; the brewery is looking somewhere from mid-west to east coast.

The new location will feature a full production brewery, Stone World Bistro and Gardens, visitor center, tap room, and more. A note published by Stone co-founders Greg Koch and Steve Wagner today is acting as a public Request for Proposal. They hope communities that consider themselves a good fit for Stone will respond with their own proposals.

No budgets, or time table for construction have been set. Bottom line, Stone will be building closer to the east coast in the fairly near future.

    Two locations: High Point, NC or Statesville, NC (both are on major east/west and North/South highway corridors, cities with progressive development plans. As well as all of the tax incentives that NC offers for breweries. Not to mention the water and electrical infrastructure that use to maintain the furniture industry. Very cool old buildings to renovate. A win win

    Asheville, NC! Create the Mecca of craft beer locations. Partner up with NB for the DC and save some cash. The ultimate beer town on east coast, no other place like it.
