Another Virginia Brewery to Open This Spring?
I've been watching the web site of the new Virginia Brewing Company for some time, hoping for news of a new brewery in nearby Winchester, VA. Recently owner Jim Justice responded to a post on the DC-Beer list and gave a pointer to this article in the Winchester Star. According to the article, the brewing equipment arrived onsite in December. The former apple and fruit processing plant will house a mix of businesses. The Engine Room Theater and the Virginia Coffee Company are about ready to open. In addition to the brewery, plans call for a mix of small businesses, restaurants, a fine arts school, art galleries, and possibly a youth center and skateboard park. A Spring opening is anticipated for the brewery, theatre and coffee company. I'll try to plan a trip to Winchester in the near future to check out the progress.
