Sunken City Brewery doubles business

Posted: Updated:
A local brewery has been doing big business since opening in May.

Within months, owner Jermone Parnell says the Sunken City Brewery Company has gone from brewing beer twice a month, to brewing beer once a week.

"We've seen explosive growth through the summer," owner Jerome Parnell says. Parnell says he never imagined the new business would take off so quickly. He says the community and local restaurants have really embraced the craft beer.

Right now, the microbrewery has 6 full-time employees, but by next year they plan to double to 10-12 employees.

They've also launched a new holiday beer. They've also expanded distribution to Virginia Beach and Richmond.
