Sierra Nevada beer tanks arrive in Charleston


By Eric Weisfeld

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) _ Workers at the Port of Charleston have begun unloading 28 mammoth beer brewing tanks being shipped to a new Sierra Nevada brewery in North Carolina.
The tanks, some of them big enough to hold 3,200 kegs of beer, were lifted by a crane off a ship and loaded onto flatbed trailers. They were then moved to another part of the port for storage. The first will begin making their way to the Asheville area by truck later this week.
Sierra Nevada announced last year it is building a new brewery in Mills River, about 12 miles south of Asheville.
Bill Manley, the director of product development for the brewer, said the first North Carolina beer will be brewed later this year with the brewery open for tours next year.
