Gov. Terry McAuliffe pulled a temporary tap inside a Fredericksburg warehouse Thursday, filled a Strangeways Brewing glass with beer and took a sip.
“Ah, that’s good,” he exclaimed. “It’s good to be governor!”
McAuliffe was at the former Burton’s Menswear warehouse at 350 Lans-downe Road to give Neil Burton, founder of Strangeways Brewing in Henrico County, $150,000 from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Forestry Industries Fund toward opening Strangeways Brewing Fredericksburg.
Fredericksburg’s Economic Development Authority will match the grant in $50,000 installments over three years.
