Greenville brewing company holds grand opening celebration

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The Uptown Brewing Company in Greenville had its grand opening with a ribbon cutting on Friday.

Customers, city officials and business leaders showed up for support.

The company brews its own beer at the Uptown Greenville location.

A partner in the business says they may have as many as nine different types of beer on tap that they make in the facility.

The business has been open for about six months and they are excited to be part of the uptown.

The business partners are from the area and say they believe Eastern Carolina is a great place to have a business and they believe many great things are coming to the area.

Company officials say they have already had to expand its capacity since they opened.

They are open six days a week and while do not make food at the location, they partner with local restaurants so you can order food and they will deliver it.
