Any Virginia Brewers gone Pro?
« on: March 11, 2012, 06:34:29 AM »
I was wondering if there were any folks from Northern VA that are in the planning stages of opening a brewery who would be willing to share any information on what setbacks they have had to deal with. Also, if there is any other information that would be helpful for someone looking to open a small 15 bbl production brewery, specific to VA laws and regulations.

State - VA
County - Fairfax or Arlington

Pretty broad request, but just throwing it out there.

Thanks!

I have no idea so I can't help you out.  But I'll volunteer to be a customer if you get it up and running  ;)  We could use some craft breweries in the area.

They're starting to pop up and a recent bill passed allowing VA microbreweries to sell pints in their tasting rooms, instead of just the 4 oz sample.

Yeah, I wrote my representative about that one.  Glad to see it passed.
