Good News

A Roanoke brewery celebrated two years in business with a day-long celebration.

Big Lick Brewing Company hosted craft beer lovers on Saturday, offering nine small-batch beers for visitors to sample. 

Big Lick BBQ was on hand to offer food for the event, and local bands entertained the crowd. 

The brewery’s owners say they’re excited to reach this milestone and see how the popularity of craft beer has grown in Southwest Virginia.

“It just amazes me every day how many new people we see, and we got all our regulars and a lot of people downtown that hang out,” said Bryan Summerson, co-owner of Big Lick Brewing Company.

The brewery is also celebrating its planned expansion. This time next year, Big Lick Brewing Company will be located in a much bigger facility down the street on Salem Avenue SW.
