California-based Stone Brewing Co. is planning to invest $1 million into an expansion of its Richmond facility.

The Richmond Economic Development Authority, which leases the property to Stone, gave conditional approval to the project at its Wednesday meeting, pending a review of the plans. The brewery hopes to break ground on the project in late summer.
