ROANOKE, Va. – Roanoke has turned itself into a craft beer destination.
There are now more than a dozen breweries in the Roanoke Valley, ranging from small-scale microbreweries to local companies establishing a reputation throughout the Mid-Atlantic.
In downtown Roanoke along, there are seven breweries, attracting people from near and far.
“I think it just adds to the whole vibe of Roanoke as an outdoor community, as a kind of hang out, have a good time community and you’ve seen an industry develop around that as well. We have brewery tours, now we’ve got a cycle tour, so I think it’s adding a lot to the community,” said Jaime Clark, the marketing and communications manager for Downtown Roanoke Inc.
