RICHMOND, Va. — Gov. Terry McAuliffe is announcing another craft brewery expansion in Virginia thanks to state help.
The governor’s office announced Thursday that Stable Craft Brewing plans to spend $500,000 to expand its brewery in Augusta County.
The expansion is set to create 13 new jobs. McAuliffe approved a $15,000 state grant through the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund, which the county will match. Stable is also eligible for a state aide through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
McAuliffe has been an enthusiastic cheerleader for the state’s growing craft beer scene and approved several grants to help boost the industry.
