Description

Back Bay Brewing Co was founded in 2011 by a group of Virginia Beach friends. With deep roots in Virginia Beach’s Back Bay, Charlie Burroughs and Josh Canada were in a duck blind discussing their dream of brewing their own beer when they decided to make that dream a reality. They brought on three life-long friends and Virginia Beach natives, George Powell, Will Yearick, and Josh Malbon who all share their passion for beer and the outdoors. A year later, with each partner bringing a unique skill set, Back Bay Brewing Co. has become a favorite place to have fun and be with friends and family.

Come enjoy craft brews at the beach's first and finest brewery!

This time, we're bringing you back to 1984 with GREMLINS!

>> Storyline <<
Minature green monsters tear through the small town of Kingston Falls. Hijinks ensue as a mild-mannered bank teller releases these hideous loonies after gaining a new pet and violating two of three simple rules: No water (violated), no food after midnight (violated), and no bright light. Hilarious mayhem and destruction in a town straight out of Norman Rockwell. So, when your washing machine blows up or your TV goes on the fritz, before you call the repair man, turn on all the lights and look under all the beds. 'Cause you never can tell, there just might be a gremlin in your house. Written by James Craver.

Movie starts at 7pm upstairs in The Blind!

We've got a new sofa for ya, plenty of seating, a new FOOSEBALL Table, DART boards and LIFE-SIZE CONNECT FOUR and JENGA, so whether ya wanna hang downstairs or chill out upstairs, we've got your Saturday night covered!

TONIGHT! Heritage Belgian IPA BEER RELEASE + Live Reggae MUSIC from Strange Rootz!! Cheers to the Weekend!

Beer Release > Heritage Belgian IPAOctober 13, 2017, 5:00pmBack Bay BrewingIt's time for another epic Beer Release! This time, we're introducing our Heritage Belgian IPA, a Belgian-American fusion IPA.

We used new world, High alpha acid, American Hops like Amarillo, and Centennial to give a full fruity flavor. The malt base is one more accustomed to a New England IPA, using Oats and Wheat to give it a softer mouthfeel. We then incorporated Belgian Yeast to ferment, giving a very noticable Belgian ester flavor. We finished it off by dry-hopping with a liberal amount of Loral Lupulin Powder to give an intense fruity aroma.

Along with this new release, we'll have some awesome live Reggae music in the Tasting Room from @[394815490630082:274:Strange Rootz] starting at 6:30pm!!!

Great place to hangout for a bit! We stopped in here to try some of the beers and there were 8 available beers varying in taste...we were able to do a flight and ended up getting a couple pints afterward. Good beers that are currently only available in the Virginia Beach - Hampton Roads vicinity.

The bartender that was on duty when we arrived was very friendly and gave us a good run-down of all they had and even told us a bit about the brewery.

They don't sell any food here but they do allow you to bring food in from the outside...nice, since there are a couple eateries in the same plaza that do carryout.

Travis was the brewer and bartender. He gave us all kinds of taste test and explained all the beers with sincerity. I'm mad we don't have a Back Bay on Long Island. Bring it up north asap! Gotta get the gringo cerveza.
