IN THE NEWS
Congratulations to our 2016 Business of the Year, Big Timber Brewing Company. Since opening their doors three years ago, this award winner has been instrumental in nurturing the beer culture in Randolph County. Big Timber began brewing and distribution of their first two beers, Porter and Blonde, in May of 2014, and opened a taproom in October that same year. Their beer is available throughout WV in over 15 different draft varieties and two canned varieties, IPA, and their flagship beer, Porter. They are now close to full production capacity and will be moving to a new production facility early this summer. With a larger brewing capacity and more fermentation space, they hope to increase their varieties and reach.
