Stone Brewing officially not coming to the Carolinas

Stone Brewing Company has ruled out all the potential locations in South Carolina and North Carolina it had been considering for its East Coast expansion.

A spokeswoman would not go in to details about the reasons behind the decision.

Myrtle Beach was one of the locations being considered for the brewing company's expansion and the South Carolina legislature even drafted up a new law that would have eased the way for Stone Brewing to come to the state.

A few weeks ago there were rumors that Myrtle Beach had been ruled out as a potential location for the company, but a spokesperson said at that time that no locations had been informed about the company's decision.
