Just thought you’d want to get the full details on the site where Sierra Nevada Brewing will be building their new east coast facility in Mill’s River, NC. Based on he photo above I’m excited to hear that SN is going to great lengths to minimize their environmental impact. Prior to the purchase several environmental, historical and wildlife impact studies were done by Henderson County, and this was a prime reason for SN’s choice of the Ferncliff Industrial Park. SN will be the first occupant in the park & pull it’s water source form Asheville’s water system…another important part of the decision given Sierra Nevada will use over 77,000 gallons of water a day! NCDOT will also play an important role with new roads to separate industrial traffic from visit traffic and provide good access to distribute SN beer.
