With a Ruthless Rye IPA firmly in hand, I want to congratulate Sierra Nevada for its expansion into North Carolina. The new brewery will become the largest Western North Carolina brewery, and bring hundreds of jobs to the area.
From everything that I have heard from other 10 breweries located in the area, they all feel that Sierra Nevada's expansion in their region brings a certain cache and prominence to the region. We couldn't agree more. It's great for the area. It's great for North Carolina. And, ultimately, it's great for craft beer.
Cheers Sierra Nevada!
