VIRGINIA BEACH -- San Diego-based Green Flash Brewing Co.'s first Virginia brewery will open in 2016.

Last year, the company said it would build a $20 million facility in Corporate Landing Business Park in Virginia Beach and hoped to open in 2015.

Mayor Will Sessoms said, 'I just recently talked with their developer Jerry Miller and he has gone out there and visited with them and everything is in place and they hope to open in early 2016.'

The plant will be able to produce 100,000 barrels of beer a year, officials said, and will bring 40 jobs to the region.
