Established in 2016, Twin Creeks Brewing Company (TCBC) is Vinton and Roanoke
County's first craft microbrewery. Owned
and operated by brothers Andy and Jason
Bishop, along with friend Barry Robertson,
TCBC is a recent winner of the Gauntlet
competition at The HIVE Business Incubation Center, with grant money provided to
help their business as they create growth
within the community.

craft breweries all over the country, eventually deciding to take up home brewing as

TCBC's tasting room has 6-10 beers
on tap on a rotating basis. TCBC has two
brewing systems: the large-batch 5 bar-
