Amber Ox Brewpub Now Open in Williamsburg

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Fri, Dec 08, 2017 @ 10:38 AM

Williamsburg's newest brewpub, Amber Ox, is now open at 521 Prince George Street in Williamsburg.  

They serve farm-to-table and Southern-style cuisine with a contemporary twist, offering fare like sweet tea-brined pork chops, shrimp and grits and pimento macaroni and cheese. 

Amber Ox brews its own unique beers — like its Country Brunch Stout, Gritz pilsner and Kung Fu Kitten IPA — but also showcases Virginia and regional craft beers, ciders, liquors and all Virginia wines.

Some of our favorite clients were treated to a VIP Soft Opening of the brewpub last week and experienced all that this new spot has to offer! 

 

 

 

"When inspiration hits, sometimes it’s with a mouthwatering plate of smoked beef brisket with spicy tomato chowchow and a mug of full-bodied craft beer. At least that’s how the idea for the Amber Ox came to us. We’ve been friends for decades, working and collaborating together in the restaurant industry, and we share a passion for great food and craft beer. We saw a need for a cool, creative, casual and approachable new eating and drinking establishment in Williamsburg, and we decided to meet it." - Co-owners Chris Cook and Andrew Voss

Our Latest Book is Now Available: "101 Reasons to Love Living in Richmond"

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Fri, Dec 01, 2017 @ 04:30 PM

cover-2-1.jpgAs you might imagine, at Liz Moore & Associates we are enthusiastic advocates of living in Richmond and its surrounding communities.  We have the best of all worlds:  four distinct seasons with just enough snow in the winter to have fun; long, lazy summers, and SPECTACULAR springs and falls.  We have great schools, plenty of history and culture, and are convenient to just about everything…the beach, the mountains, Washington DC, and much more.

Who knows the insider secrets of this dynamic area better than the best REALTORS in town?  We’ve compiled 101 of our favorite things about living Richmond and are excited to announce the release of our latest book, 101 Reasons to Love Living in Richmond.

The hard part of writing this book was to narrow it down to 101 reasons to love living here.  It would be impossible to include everything, and so we tried to stick to our favorite things.  I’ve we’ve missed something, please don’t hesitate to email us at RVA@lizmoore.com, and we’ll consider adding it to the next edition. 

You can download the electronic version for free, or purchase a hard copy for $5, at lizmoore.com/101.

Now, grab a highlighter, and pick out some fun things to do this weekend!
