A new brewery is coming soon to Lenoir City and officials were on hand Friday afternoon for a groundbreaking ceremony.
They say not only will there be a brewery and restaurant but also there will be room for shops. Officials hope it will boost the economy.
“We beleive it will be a huge economic growth to downtown. We believe a lot of people will visit the brewery,” said Mayor Tony Aikens.
The building they’re using has quite a history of its own. It used to hold the utility company and at one time a jail. The brewery is expected to open toward the end of the year.
