The Entrepreneurs Connection

We are often asked the question: "Why open a brewery in Williamsburg?" It's a multi-faceted answer involving a connection to William & Mary, timing in the Virginia craft beer explosion, individual careers, and more. 

Recently we sat down with members of GW Launchpad (The Greater Williamsburg Incubator), Thomas Nelson Community College, and James City County at The Alan B. Miller Entrepreneurship Center (at the William & Mary Mason School of Business) to discuss our roots, our adventures, and our progress. 

If you're interested in the story of The Virginia Beer Company, or in the entrepreneurial adventure, take a look at the video below to learn about ours. If you're in the Williamsburg area, keep an eye out for future Startup LINK meetings, and as always - feel free to reach out to us with any questions!
