Twin Creeks Brewing Company set for grand opening

VINTON (WSLS 10) - A new brewery will open its doors on Saturday in Vinton.

Twin Creeks Brewing Company, Roanoke County's first craft brewery and tasting room, features 10 different beers.

It's the brain child of owners Andy Bishop, his brother, Jason, and their friend Barry Robertson.

The owners and town officials said it's a key piece of the puzzle to attract visitors to downtown Vinton.

"I think Virginia is very close to probably being one of the beer capitals of the U.S. honestly; especially the Roanoke Valley. There's more coming. Seems like every year another brewery is opening up," said Bishop. "We've got some great brewers in this town and the beer is really top quality so I think it's got a long ways, a long future ahead of us."

Twin Creeks also offers crowlers, 32-ounce aluminum cans that customers can fill and take home.

Saturday's grand opening is lasts from 12-10 p.m.
