Chaos Mountain Brewing is expanding in Franklin County
Chaos Mountain Brewing LLC said Wednesday it’s spending $250,000 to expand in Franklin County. The project will create five jobs.
“We look forward to purchasing new equipment, increasing production, and making improvements to our facility, including adding more parking,” Chaos Mountain Brewing’s owners, Joe and Wendy Hallock, said in a statement.
The company, which began operation in 2014, also has committed to sourcing nearly half of its agriculture purchases from Virginia farms over the next three years as part of the deal. “Virginia agricultural products will play a large role in increasing our production and extending our distribution out of state,” the Hallocks said.
Gov. Ralph Northam approved an $8,000 grant from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund (AFID), which Franklin County is matching.
