North Carolina-basedCarolina Breweryhas expandedinto Tennessee markets, including Chattanooga.

“We chose Chattanooga for our expansion because it is adjacent to North Carolina and it has such a vibrant, active lifestyle culture that is similar to North Carolina,” founderRobert Poitras said in a prepared statement. “We are impressed with the growing craft beer scene in Chattanooga and eastern Tennessee and look forward to being a part of it.”

The growth into Chattanooga is part of a bigger expansion into other areas of Tennessee and some places in South Carolina.
