Roanoke brewery looks for investors to help switch from 22oz to 16oz bottles

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE, VA -

Making the beer at Roanoke Railhouse Brewery is just half the battle.

The company president Steve Davidson says he also wants the craft beer to fly off the shelves.

"We think this is the key to our overall growth," Roanoke Railhouse Brewery President, Steve Davidson says.

Davidson is talking about a plan to put the brewed beer into smaller bottles, making it easier for people to grab a 6-pack and go.

"We're hoping it will give us the opportunity to do significantly more volume," Davidson says.

Right now, the craft beer comes in 22oz bottles, and 16oz cans, but Davidson hopes the 12oz bottles will be more enticing for customers.

Although, getting the craft beer into the hands of more people requires more space and more money.

He wants to move the bottling production side of the company to another brewery in Virginia and is looking for a few investors to buy up a little more than 70 shares in the come.

"Some more people in the valley who are interested Roanoke Railhouse and helping the community spread it's name," Davidson says.

Davidson isn't sure which beer will come in the 12oz bottles first, but hopes to the change will help them brew up more business.
