HT-N: State trying to put together a beer deal

The Hendersonville Times-News reported Friday that North Carolina is making a push to land another major craft brewer.

Two years after scoring a double victory with the recruitment of New Belgium and Sierra Nevada, North Carolina is among several states now trying to lure Stone Brewing Co. of Southern California, one of the 10 largest craft breweries in the country.

The Escondido, Calif.-based company has made public a Request for Proposal in its plans to find a site for an East Coast expansion facility somewhere east of the Mississippi.

The RFP, open to all communities throughout the Eastern U.S., expires Saturday and has generated responses from numerous cities ranging from Facebook page campaigns to songs written about why Stone should choose their particular area.
