Yalobusha Brewing Company Coming To Water Valley, MS

imageA new small craft brewery is coming to Water Valley, MS.  Details from Yalnews:

The historic Hendricks building will soon become home to the first craft brewery in north Mississippi.

The brewery will be only the fourth in the state and will represent nearly a million dollar investment in downtown.

Business partners Andrew O’Bryan of Tula and Dr. Mac Nichols of Oxford appeared before the Planning Commission last week initially seeking a zoning variance that would make the project possible. However, central business district zoning doesn’t prohibit light manufacturing, according to commissioners. So, no action was needed.

O’Bryan said that the brewery would create 10 to 15 jobs in the first year. “We can dream after that. We would hire locally,” he added. “We want to use as many local assets as possible.”
Commissioners did question aspects of the operation including emissions and parking. O’Bryan answered that craft breweries are quiet businesses and that wastewater discharge is heavily regulated by both the state and federal governments.
