Virginia is for lovers, of beer
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - August 22, 2012 (WPVI) -- Virginia is for lovers -- and for beer lovers, too.
The state has used the Virginia is for Lovers slogan for years to promote tourism.
Now, Virginia is touting its craft brewers to attract visitors.
The state makes it into the Top Seven beer destinations in North America, according to the Travel Channel.
A change in state law is also giving the small brewers a boost.
They can now serve their brew in tap rooms instead of just bottling it for sale.
