Botetourt County soon to be home to New Belgium Brewing

DALEVILLE, Va. – A new brewing company is coming to Botetourt County.

Botetourt County officials made the announcement on Thursday, saying that Daleville will soon be home to New Belgium Brewing.

The new brewing company will be located in the Constellation Brands facility in the Botetourt Center at Greenfield, officials said.

“The Roanoke Region has built a strong reputation for its craft brewery culture. New Belgium’s announcement in Botetourt County adds to our strong food and beverage cluster and brings incredible energy to what we’re doing here,” said John Hull, Executive Director at the Roanoke Regional Partnership. “We’re sure this will be a great fit as New Belgium shares our community values of outdoor recreation and livability.”

Those that were working at the Constellation Brands facility – around 60 employees – have been offered employment at New Belgium at equal or greater pay than before, according to company officials.

“We understand that the current 60 employees of Constellation Brands have been offered jobs at current or higher wages to remain with New Belgium, which we very much appreciate for the workers and their families,” said Botetourt County Administrator Gary Larrowe. “I understand there will be more information coming out as the agreement is finalized.”

Once the deal is completed, New Belgium said workers will immediately begin brewing at Daleville, focusing on Voodoo Ranger Juice Force IPA, and the 2023 sequel Fruit Force IPA.

We’re told the deal is planned to close sometime in May.

New Belgium Brewing already has a handful of locations across the nation, according to their website, with two main locations in Asheville, North Carolina, and Fort Collins, Colorado. To learn more about the company, click here.
