Virginia Brewing Company Beer Fest, Head Brewer Announced

The Virginia Brewing Company of Winchester, VA will be holding a beer festival May 2-4. Here are details from an email received today:
The Virginia Brewing Company (VBC) holds its Grand Opening & Beer Fest on May 2-4, 2008 at the ZeroPak complex in Winchester, Virginia. Join the festivities as the VBC taps great craft beers, hosts live music, and welcomes the public to the Shenandoah Valley's new brewhall and event space.

The VBC Beerhall is located at 580 N. Cameron Street, two blocks north of Old Town Winchester, and will be open Friday, May 2 from noon to midnight, Saturday, May 3 from noon to midnight, and Sunday, May 4 from noon to 5 p.m. Enjoy your favorite tasty beverages, savory eats, and great music from Fly featuring Phil Zuckerman, The Speakeasy Boys, Craggy Island, and more.

Unfortunately, I've been informed that no Virginia Brewing Company beers will be ready in time for the grand opening. However, brewer John Hovermale, Jr., previously of Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, Vermont, has returned to his native Winchester to brew craft beer for the VBC. Hopefully we'll see beer coming out of Winchester soon.
