We’ve heard all of the chatter about New Belgium Brewing coming to PA, but now comes word that Philadelphia is one of four locations that New Belgium is considering for a production brewery on the east coast. Previously Asheville NC was named, and I suspect once again Tennessee is also in on the possibilities, but no details beyond that. Looks like NB is aiming to do site visits in the next few weeks with a decision to be made by the end of the year…so stay tuned.
And this from NC courtesy of the abclocal may make it harder for Philly: The General Assembly has agreed to let larger beer-makers sell their product on site in a move supporters argue will attract a pair of breweries to set up in the North Carolina mountains and potentially generate 300 jobs
