Greensboro out of the running for a new Stone Brewery location

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Stone Brewery has eliminated North and South Carolina from consideration as possible locations for a big time brewery, meaning Greensboro is out of the question.

Mayor Nancy Vaughan confirmed Friday that the brewery will not be opening a location in Greensboro.

Vaughan said the decision was a geographic one, not necessarily something the city didn’t offer or recruitment concern.

“When they do look to expand in the Southeast in the future, I believe Greensboro will be in a very good position,” she added.

Stone Brewing Company is searching for a 15-acre spot to build a restaurant, a brewery, a distribution center, as well as a retail center. The company is expecting to add 328 jobs over three years.

Greensboro city officials said the company is also looking at Richmond, Va., Norfolk, Va. and Cincinnati, Ohio.
