Colorado brewer delays North Carolina plant

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — A Colorado brewing company has delayed plans to open a plant in western North Carolina.

New Belgium Brewing Co. says added capacity in Colorado means the company does not need the brewery in Asheville as soon as expected.

The craft brewer says it will delay construction in North Carolina by eight months.

The company recently completed an addition in Fort Collins, Colo. New Belgium is known for its Fat Tire beer and other brands.

New Belgium said two years ago it would build a $175 million brewery in Asheville that was planned to open in 2015 with up to 150 employees.

General Manager Jay Richardson says the new plan calls for the Asheville operation to begin in late 2015 or early 2016.
