The Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors gave the go ahead to Fluvanna’s first brewery on Wednesday night (May 18).

Antioch Brewing Company, owned by Raymond and Chrystan Bunch, has gotten rave reviews for its beer, said brewery representative Alan Crummette, but so far has been giving it away for free.

“We aren’t legal yet,” said Crummette. “And that’s why we want to hurry up and get this rolling so that we can start recovering our losses and growing our business.”
