RICHMOND, Va. – Three Notch’d Brewing Company will create eight new jobs in Charlottesville as part of its expansion, Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced on Wednesday.

The brewing company will invest more than $2.9 million to expand its craft brewery and will purchase 69 percent of its agricultural inputs from Virginia farmers.

“Three Notch’d Brewing Company’s continued growth and investment in the city of Charlottesville is great news for Virginia’s agriculture sector and our economy overall,” said McAuliffe.  “Investments like this create jobs, generate tourism activity, and open new markets for Virginia’s farmers. Helping Virginia companies thrive and create opportunity in their communities is at the very heart of this administration’s mission to build a new Virginia economy.”

The expansion will support the company’s craft beer distribution to meet the increasing demand in Virginia and surrounding states.

McAuliffe approved a $50,000 grant from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund, which Charlottesville will match with local funds.
