Hampton Roads Beer, Wine, Spirits


Recommended Posts

With all the news about beer, wine, cider, distilleries, etc., in Hampton Roads. I figured a catch-all thread would be a good idea. Feel free to add any news, reviews, or impressions of the HR brewery scene.

New Realm Brewery opened last week in the former Green Flash Brewery location in Virginia Beach. And the crowds were as big as they were when Green Flash were there. 

Sly Clyde Ciderworks opened in the Phoebus area of Hampton this last Saturday.  My g/f and i went there, and had a wonderful time. Good stuff for those who like cider. Will definitely go back when the newness wears off. 

Back Bay's Farmhouse Brewing Company is going to open on Saturday September 29th. They will be making Back Bay beers and ciders on-site in Virginia Beach.

Some more random news. 

Rumor has it that Reaver Beach will open up a tasting room in the former Milan Station Post Office on Colley Avenue in Norfolk.

Bold Mariner just announced that they will be moving ALL beer production to their new Ocean View location, which is due to open later this year.  Both the Lambert's Point and OV location will stay open while they add a building at OV for their beer production equipment.  https://www.facebook.com/BoldMariner/photos/a.673996772689390/2085529084869478/

Elation Brewing in Norfolk is on hold now. Due to the federal government shutdown, they cannot get final approval to open their brewery.  https://www.wavy.com/news/local-news/hampton-roads-breweries-latest-group-to-be-impacted-by-government-shutdown/1705051431
