Ballast Point Development Moves Forward

9/9/2016

Fincastle, VA – Ballast Point Brewing and Spirits has achieved its next milestone in developing its East Coast operations. The company closed on its 259,040 sq. ft. building in the Botetourt Center at Greenfield on September 6, 2016. This action represents the culmination of more than a year’s work to have Ballast Point   arrive in Botetourt. Now, the next phases of development can begin, including the installation of brewing equipment and further site developments.

“We are very excited to see Ballast Point continue to move forward at a quick pace with their development in Botetourt,” said County Administrator Gary Larrowe. “I know that the community is enthusiastic about all of the possibilities that the brewery offers, from jobs to socialization.”

In May, Ballast Point announced that it would invest about $48 million to establish an East Coast brewing operation in Botetourt County. As a part of that announcement, the company agreed to purchase the Lawrence Companies building located at Greenfield where it plans to create 178 jobs in manufacturing and retail operations.
