After several years in search of an ideal site for their second brewery, Sierra Nevada has chosen Mills River, NC as the future site of its expansion.  Founder and owner Ken Grossman had this to say about the new location:

“Much like Chico, with its close proximity to many creeks, rivers and the Sierras, the location for our new brewery in North Carolina will be situated on property that borders the French Broad River, with the Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop. Of course, building a new brewery from the ground up is no small task, and we anticipate the construction to take between 18 and 24 months. Our East Coast brewery will be built with a sustainable and mindful approach and maintain the integrity of the property and beauty of the natural landscape.”

Construction will take approximately 2 years and the brewery is expected to employ approximately 90 workers, with additional staff in the restaurant to follow.
