As tourism officials herald the rise of Loudoun's craft breweries - and county officials consider how to regulate them - Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Friday announced another boon to the local brewing industry: the creation of the largest hops yard in Virginia, and the mid-Atlantic's first commercial-scale hops processing facility. The processing facility will be built at Black Hops Farm in Lucketts, where 15 acres of former pasture land will be converted into a hops yard, the governor's office said in a statement.
