Elizabethton’s First Brewery to Open, Likely in 2019

The first-ever brewery in Elizabethton is set to open later this year or early in 2019.

News 5 reports Jamie Kerr, a longtime home brewer, decided to step out and open Appalachian Sun Brewery.

The brewery and tasting room will be located in an area of the old Bemberg plant, specifically the old shipping docks.

Kerr does still needs to get licenses from local, state and federal governments in order to open. He said he expects the licensing process to be finished by November or December.
