Coastal Virginia Ale Trail

Dedicated to all things local, let Taste Tidewater take you to the best craft beer the Virginia Beach/ Norfolk area has to offer.  Taste and tour at up to three venues based on availability.  Current partners include:

  • Beach Brewing
  • Young Veterans Brewing
  • Bay Back Brewing
  • Gordon Biersch
  • Smartmouth Brewing
  • O'Connor Brewing
  • The Birch Bar

Tours generally last about four hours and include local history and lore as well as tips on tasting and pairing beers with food.

You will travel in comfort in our 12-seat exectutive coach.  Much more comfortable than a taxi or limo, the height of the van allows  guests to stand up and walk to their seats- no crawling or scooting!  We are happy to provide water and lights snacks for the ride, and  guests are welcome to bring their own picnic, snacks, and beverages. We  have space for your cooler. Guests can enjoy their own music or even a  movie on our flat-screen TV.

The cost of the tastings at each stop is not included due to current ABC  laws. With some exceptions, typical costs for a tasting is $8 per person per brewery  including tax and tip. 

Feel free to contact us with any questions!
