PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) - A new malting facility and craft distillery is set to open in Petersburg, creating nine jobs.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Wednesday that Big Trouble Malting and Spirits is planning to invest nearly $1 million in the project.

The company also plans to source all agricultural products from Virginia, including more than 40,000 bushels of barley, wheat, rye and fruit.

McAuliffe approved a $50,000 grant from the Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund for the project.
