In the recent WY Daily article, JCC Planners OK Small-Scale Alcohol Production in Commercial Areas, The Virginia Beer Company received a shout out as an example of one member of the burgeoning craft industry in Virginia's Historic Triangle.
“Craft alcohol production is a burgeoning part of the Historic Triangle’s economy, with several new businesses either in the planning stages or in the process of opening for business.
The Silver Hand Meadery is seeking permission from the City of Williamsburg to open for business at the Monticello Shopping Center, while Copper Fox Distillery has acquired the former Lord Paget Motel and is working to open there.
In York County...AleWerks has been operating since 2006 and The Virginia Beer Company is expected to open in the county...on Second Street. York County altered its zoning ordinance in December to open more areas of the county to alcohol production. ”
