NORFOLK, VA (WWBT) - A Norfolk brewery is expanding their distribution to the Richmond area.

Coelacanth Brewing teamed up with Virginia Craft Distribution to expand their footprint to the Richmond area.

"This is especially exciting for me, since I lived in Richmond for about 13 years before moving to the Hampton Roads area. I have a lot of friends there, and I'd love to be able to get our beer into their hands" said Kevin Erskine, owner of Coelacanth Brewing.

Erskine said he liked the portfolio of quality breweries that Virginia Craft Distribution was putting together.

"I just knew this was the right move for us to move into the Richmond market," said Erskine.

Coelacanth Brewing is a small, traditional, family and employee-owned brewery in Norfolk.
