The facility will be in the Pineview Industrial Park in Columbia.

The release says White Claw Hard Seltzer and Mike’s Hard Lemonade are among the beverages it will produce. The facility is expected to be fully operational by summer.

The project will benefit from the state’s job development credits program. And Richland County will receive more than $6 million in grants for infrastructure work and property acquisition.
