Silver Branch Brewing Establishes Fauquier County, Virginia, Operations

Silver Branch Brewing Company, a production brewery and taproom, plans to establish operations in Fauquier County, Virginia. The $3 million project is expected to create 38 jobs.

The new operation will be located at the former Wort Hog facility and will expand the company’s presence and increase its ability to brew a wider variety of products.

“Silver Branch Brewing Company’s expansion into Virginia is a testament to the Commonwealth’s reputation in food and beverage processing that is driven by our business advantages, industry resources, and strategic access to markets,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. “Manufacturing growth is critical to economic vitality, and we are excited to see its resurgence in regions across Virginia.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Fauquier County to secure the project and will support Silver Branch’s production-related job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities. As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP is state-funded and reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies.

“It is an honor to welcome Silver Branch Brewing Company to the Commonwealth’s impressive food and beverage processing industry, which represents our second-largest manufacturing sector,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “This project demonstrates the value and efficiency that Virginia’s robust logistics infrastructure adds to companies’ supply chain growth, and we look forward to supporting Silver Branch’s future success in Fauquier County.”

Silver Spring, Maryland-based Silver Branch Brewing Company brews and serves beer inspired by European and American beer traditions.
