Bend, OR-based maker of fermented teas Humm Kombucha plans to open a $10 million brewing facility in Roanoke, VA, the office of Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe announced in a press release Tuesday.

Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage that offers vitamins, probiotics, and energy. Founded by Michelle Mitchell and Jamie Danekhad in 2008, the company currently operates a 40,000-sq-ft production facility in Oregon. Its products are currently sold across the U.S. and in Sweden, according to Humm’s website.

The 100,000-sq-ft facility in Virginia will be the firm’s second production site, the Bend Bulletin reported. The project is expected to create 50 jobs.

Humm’s founders said that their decision to open the Roanoke site was influenced by the experiences of Deschutes Brewery, which recently invested $85 million in a project. The plant is expected to become operational in 2019.
