Our Mission

To produce world-class beer, while celebrating Newport News' community, embracing old traditions, creating new, and giving back.

Our Vision

As we continue to grow, we aim to continuously create a welcoming atmosphere, extend our presence throughout the state of Virginia and Coastal Carolina, and expand our beer portfolio through our flagships, elevating seasonal selections, barrel-aging programs, and other collaborative series.


In 2014 we started sketching out plans to build the first craft brewery in our hometown of Newport News. From the beginning, the goal was to create a space where people from all walks of life could find commonalities and camaraderie over quality craft beer. And to have a little fun along the way.

In 2016 we opened our doors to the public. The support we received from the community was mind-blowing and left us humbled and excited for the years to come.

We work continuously to build relationships within our community and provide a relaxed space for all to enjoy. Over the past several years, our regulars have become family, our partners our friends. Our beertenders are (semi-unbiasedly) the best, and we believe in celebrating and utilizing the talent of our people to the fullest.

So, we invite you to come, relax, and share a drink with us. We really enjoy what we do here, and think you will too.
