Didn’t care for this at first but it’s grown on me. Large warehouse with ample space. Indoor cornhole and "brewery Jenga" with 2x4’s. Lots of picnic tables. Live bands on weekends and special occasions. Other events as well, based off their calendar. I think the beers have vastly improved as well. No food here except for food trucks, but that is the status quo for VA breweries in this area. I enjoy going here, personally. My only issue is the lines and parking, but that’s to be expected with a popular local brewery.

Pretty large place, lots of room for seating, a decent sized bar, a game area, and a second floor for parties and such. Brewing equipment on full display, which is cool. No food, but apparently food trucks.They were running 8 taps - six for their "core" beers and two specials. They offered flights for $10 which included the six cores and any one of the specials. A bit cheap that they just didn’t offer all that they were pouring, but what the hell. Beer was pretty mediocre, with the black IPA being the best in class. Rather annoyingly the did not announce last call (at 7:45 pm) and turned my buddy away when he tried to get another beer at 7:50 or so. Overall a Meh.

massive place. Feels like a Brewery.
It may be a little too big for some - and there is little intimacy if that’s your thing.
Tasting room area is very cool. Generally knowledgable staff - and let’s face it, the best broad selection of beer in Hampton Roads.

I don’t know what this place was in its last life, but it is a brewery with a nice picnic area, a food truck, and razor wire around the outside. Nice selection of about 10 house beers with gear, growlers, and sixers available. Had a sample, with two firkin pours and I think it was something like $7. A nice experience.

A bit of a dive, located in an industrial part of town. picnic style seating in the brewery, but the beer is good. They had one beer on tap not available in bottle.

Finally made it to this local brewery and enjoyed the visit. The current location is strictly a kinda dumpy beer factory. Parking is really tricky. Once inside, they have some picnic tables and a small bar right in the factory floor with little 1970s-styled bathrooms down some seedy hallway. The staff is comprised of goofy hipsters, and there aren’t any beers here that you can’t find in bottles around town. But it was fun enough. I pretended to not see the rat crawling around on the bags of malt. Brewery #638.

Called ahead to arrange an informal chat and tour for myself and two co-workers. Jimmy showed us around, let us sample everything they had. There was a steady parade of locals stopping by for beers, most seemed to be friends of the brewers, neighbors, or volunteers. Some brand new fermenters were in place but not hooked up, so expansion seems imminent. Definitely worth trying their stuff at local places, or stopping by if you’re in the neighborhood.

This is your standard industrial warehouse kind of brewery. I met a couple of the assistant brewers and though they weren’t technically open, they were happy to share beers and conversation. They have no retail license, so no beer to go as of yet, but their stuff is available all around the area, with the occasional keg reaching Richmond. Some of the beers could use some refinement, but overall they are nice.
