Really great small but growing local brewery.
Great new tasting room (old one was small and cramped).
Selction changes...but the keep some standards on tap and try new things...not all are winners - but in aggregate producing great flavorful beer. Probably best brewery in VA Beach at this point.
Brewer/owner doesn’t make many appearances since he’s always working - but he should come out front more - he knows his stuff. Other bar staff is friendly, engaging and service oriented.
Welcome to the Beer Revulotion. The first visit to Beach Brewing they were in the same industrial park in a very small tasting room. On Saturday they opened in a bigger location. Tents were in the parking lot and I arrived 1 hour early. The great personal service from this brewery still filled a growler for the Special Olympics party on the beach. The bar surface is compsed of pennies for the entire area. This is a first class tasting room with wonderful servers.
Very small tasting room with good opening hours, nestled in a warehouse industrial zone outside of VA Beach. Ample free parking. Only room inside for about 6-8 people. 5 Taps on when I was there, I don’t think they even had 7 tap lines. You can get a flight of 4...leaving the fifth beer I guess needing to order a full glass of? -__- Beer quality was average to slightly above average. The DIPA and RIS were both very nice. The Berliner and others quite odd with the Altbier lacto infected. They sold two bottles to go, their DIPA and a one-off BA Barleywine. Growler fills as well as keg sales. Staff was I guess not so interested in chatting with us or seemingly not very happy to have us there despite us being 2 of 4 people inside the crammed space. The staff I figured out from reading the newspaper articles on the walls were the husband/wife owners and brewers it seems. Overall, the Beach Brewing stuff was hard to find in bottles around town and was barely on tap anywhere in the vicinity, so this was really the only way to try their stuff. Good for ticking, will be worth the trip if their BA Barleywine delivers. Prices were good- $5 for 4 sample flight and $3-5 a full glass pour. You can do 64oz growler fills or 32oz "grenade" fills.
This has to be one of the smallest tasting rooms I’ve ever seen, although in good weather on weekends there is some space outdoors. The beers are very solid, four available when I visited, plus another in bottles. They just installed a TV to attract the football-watching crowd. Worth a stop, especially since it’s the only craft brewery in Virginia Beach.
Nice tap room. Great service and beer. Ran into the owner of Tequesta Brewing Company while there, doing the same thing we were....touring beer spots.

Small drinking room at the brewery (in an industrial park) that serves Beach Brewing’s beers. Hubcap Grill shows up and provides food on Saturdays. They also have cask beers on Saturdays. Went today (but not my first time) to get the soon to be kicked Ghost Ship Pale Ale. Called first to verify. Was told it might not last. Checked traffic and called back. They said they’d hold it for me. Couldn’t believe how awesome that was! Got there and had cask Hammerhead IPA with mango and habanero. Also had the Festbier. Filled growlers with Ghost Ship & the Hammerhead mango and habanero cask. Awesome customer service and beers. Love me some Beach Brewing!
