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!

Great local brewery. Always something new and interesting on the cask. Not pretentious, just good beer made by good people. Stop by and hello to Bradley, she'll take care of you.. Also.. Friendly dogs are welcome.

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.
