Roanoke Brewery & Tasting Room
After visiting many amazing communities over the past few years in our search for an East Coast location, we’re thrilled to be joining Roanoke’s emergent brewing community. Everyone we’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with during this process has been incredible, and we’ve been blown away with the support of this community. The #Deschutes2Rke campaign as become #DeschutesRKE! It was so impressive to see everyone rally together. We love the area and find Bend and Roanoke to be “more alike than you think“.
We are now sharing beers with local craft beer fans in Downtown Roanoke. Learn all about our Tasting Room here.
Location: The site location on the eastern outskirts of town is ideal with its beautiful views and access to Tinker Creek. We look forward to building our new brewery here and the array of possibilities it holds to incorporate some fun, outdoor features to celebrate the culture of beer.
Timeline: It’s going to take us a couple of years to plan and build our east coast brewery. At this point we anticipate breaking ground in 2019. If all goes according to plan (fingers crossed) this would put us on track to be shipping beer from our new brewery in 2021.
Beer: Our beer is now available in most cities in Virginia, including Roanoke, Charlottesville, & the Beach Cities. In SW Virginia, we’ve partnered with Blue Ridge Beverage to bring our most popular beers to your favorite watering holes and grocery stores.
Jobs: We look forward to hiring about 100 positions for the production brewery, but that’s still a few years down the road. We will not be accepting applications or resumes quite yet, but we will make an announcement to the community once we start the hiring process.
