Back Bay Heritage Festival

Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum
1113 Atlantic Ave
Virginia Beach, VA  23451 (Map)

Back Bay Brewing has partnered with the Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum at the historic de Witt Cottage to bring you the 1st Annual BACK BAY HERITAGE FESTIVAL!

This event will raise funds, friends and awareness for one of our City's greatest historical treasures!

Heritage Festival will feature Beer Tastings from the best local Craft Breweries--7 BREWERIES // 12 BEER OFFERINGS, Awesome Live Music by Austin Ferguson of The Cody Austin Band and Bennett Wales, your favorite Food Trucks: Cast Iron Catering Co and Lucky Peach, a stellar Silent Auction and more!

P.S.Proceeds will go to the Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum at the De Witt Cottage! Help us support this amazing local treasure and re-open the FIRST FREESTANDING LIBRARY IN VIRGINIA BEACH!!!

Here's a sneak peek of the BEER LIST!

Back Bay Brewing -- 6 craft beer offerings!

Witch of Pungo -- True to its name, Witch of Pungo is strong in body with a little burn. In addition to pumpkin, this brew incorporates sweet potatoes, which give it a richer flavor, while hints of cinnamon and nutmeg balance it out.

Gringo Cerveza -- A collaboration with Gringos Taqueria and the beautiful Evie, Gringo Cerveza! A light, crisp, yellow lager made with traditional malts, corn for sweetness, citrusy hops and lemon

Cape Henry Hefeweizen -- Our Cape Henry Hefeweizen is a traditional hefeweizen with a bit of a twist—full of flavor, light in body with subtle hints of Banana, Clove and Honey!

Atlantic Ave IPA -- A blend of Mosaic and Nugget hops sit atop a single malt (Maris Otter) IPA. Grapefruit and citrus bitterness dominate with flavors of peach, mango and assorted tropical fruits.

Heritage IPA -- A SPECIAL BREW FOR THIS EPIC FESTIVAL!

False Cape Amber Ale -- A full bodied red ale. With a dark copper color and well rounded malt base; a bit sweet, with a lightly hopped tea-like flavor, and an even, dextrinous body. False Cape Ale is easy to please. Look for well-rounded and balanced flavors and a pleasant, toasted malt character. A drying finish comes from Cascade dry-hopping.


The Bold Mariner Brewing Company -- Bold Jack Pumpkin Ale

Drifting in the moonlight across an endless expanse of blue bravehearts and fearless men find Bold Jack following too.

A medium bodied orange colored ale brewed with pumpkin added to the mash then finished with autumn aromas of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice.


Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant - Virginia Beach -- FestBier

GB FestBier bears similarities to their flagship Märzen beer,, however, FestBier is lighter in color, pouring a bright golden orange color with a low but dense head of white bubbles, and it is more focused on hop flavor and aroma than the Märzen. The aroma begins with a burst of toasty malt character highlighting the essence of bread crust, with the slightest hint of caramel malt, followed by a delicate but firm earthy hop bitterness. On the palate, biscuity toasted malts provide a subtle sweetness balanced by the bright, but not overwhelming, spicy and floral hop flavor and bitterness. The medium-light beer finishes crisp and dry with a pleasant lingering hop bite that is boosted by the relatively high carbonation.


O'Connor Brewing Co. -- R & R Lager

This lager has a clean profile with a touch of sweet malt character, balanced with a floral hop aroma and slightly spicy hop flavor. Light, refreshing, and easy drinking, this beer is the perfect accompaniment for a bit of R&R, any time of year.


Rip Rap Brewing Co. -- Baggywrinkle Altbier

This craft brew is a German Style Altbier with a clean slightly malty finish and a touch of German hops.


Smartmouth Beer -- Outta Yer Gourd Pumpkin Ale

From this beer, with a warm copper tint like their brew house kettles, wafts the fragrant bouquet of warm spices. The Smartmouth brewing crew ground and mixed a custom medley of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, ginger and all spice. These autumn flavors will tingle your nose and palate. The malty backbone supports the beer’s distinct flavors and gives it a nice sweet finish. It’s sure to go down as easy as, well, (pumpkin) pie.


Wasserhund Brewing Company -- Oktoberfest

This beer is smooth, light, golden orange, and wonderfully malty. Outside of Germany's Oktoberfest, they searched far and wide to find something brewed stateside that came close. Wasserhund gave up their search and decided to make our own. Prost!

Vienna Boys Choir

Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
201 Market St
Virginia Beach, VA  23462 (Map)

Beloved for its pure, heavenly sound, this internationally revered choir can trace its history as far back as the 13th century, and despite the youth of its singers, represents an art form steeped in tradition and history. Today, boys audition for the choir from around the world; many of them have fathers or even grandfathers who were choir members. The full choir is divided into four equally gifted touring groups, each led by its own conductor and accompanied by tutors. The group who will be presented by the Virginia Arts Festival includes boys from Austria, Cambodia, China, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and the Philippines. They will be led by their spirited Italian choirmaster Manolo Cagnin, who has traveled with the group throughout Europe, North and South America, and Asia. He chooses repertoire to match the boys’ voices and personalities—including, in the case of these December performances, some of the best-loved holiday music ever written. Order your tickets early, as previous Virginia Arts Festival performances of the Vienna Boys Choir have sold out!... See MoreSee Less
