Aviator Brewing plans expansion to new warehouse

November 13, 2017 GMT

A popular brewery is moving on up while not moving far away at all.

Aviator Brewing announced on Monday a $4 million expansion project that includes relocation to the 109,000 square feet Gold Leaf Tobacco warehouse located one block away from their current venue in downtown Fuquay-Varina.

“I would like to thank town officials for believing in the long-term success we have planned,” said Mark Doble, CEO of Aviator Brewing. “We started our business in an airplane hangar nearly ten years ago and now we have grown to become one of the top craft breweries in the country.”

Within a block radius of the brewery, the company also operates the Aviator Tap House, Aviator Smoke House, Aviator Bottle Shop and, coming soon, a brick oven pizza shop. The expansion, planned to be complete by Spring 2019, will bring 75 new jobs to the community.
