VIRGINIA’S NEW RIVER VALLEY – The first microbrewery in Christiansburg will soon be located downtown.
Seth Locklear, Jansen Lee, and Stephen Peter, three friends who went to Virginia Tech, founded Iron Tree Brewing Company, which will be located on Roanoke Street.
The brewery will focus on a wide range of beers so there is something for everyone. There will not be food made in-house, but the goal is to have delivery from food trucks and other local restaurants.
The founders hope to open in the beginning of 2020.
Stay up to date with the brewery’s progress on the Iron Tree Brewing Company Facebook page.
