JAMES CITY-In an anticipation of its 50th anniversary in 2022, Anheuser-Busch’s Williamsburg brewery is prepping for upgrades to its facilities.

Anheuser-Busch announced in February its $1 billion project plan to upgrade and expand four of its United States breweries including the one in Williamsburg.

The upgrades and expansions to facilities will enhance operations and create more jobs. In addition to brewery upgrades, Anheuser-Busch will spend close to $300 million for domestic production and distribution of Stella Artois in the United States.

The upgrade and expansion project will take place over the next two years. Specific plans for the Williamsburg brewery will be released once the project is underway.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
