Local Scoop Gets The Scoop On VBC

We're all really excited (understatement) about the start of brewing at The Virginia Beer Company. Just as we were preparing for our very first brew day in January, The Local Scoop swooped in and got the scoop (so to speak) on our plans to get brewing and get open in 2016. Excerpt below and the full story can be enjoyed here

Amid the hustle and bustle of preparations last week in anticipation of Winter Storm Jonas, the team at Virginia Beer Co. was busy preparing for another momentous, albeit less apocalyptic, occasion.

After years of planning, co-founders Robby Willey and Chris Smith, along with brewmaster Jonathan Newman, worked despite the backdrop of snow to get ready for the first brew day at their Second Street brewery in Williamsburg.

If all goes to plan, the new craft brewery will have its first beer completed by mid-February, with a goal to finish seven more beers ahead of a grand opening tentatively scheduled for March.

“We’re all really excited,” Willey said.
