NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Stone Brewing Company is looking for a new location, and two Virginia cities are in the running. Richmond and Norfolk are finalists for the east coast brewery.

That means big money could come to Hampton Roads as the company expects to invest $60 million in the first five years. The brewery will employ more than 350 people.

If Stone Brewing Company opens in Norfolk, it would be the city’s third brewery. Smartmouth and O’Connor already brew in the Mermaid City.
