The Newport News brewery, located at 700 Thimble Shoals Blvd., will offer Randall candy infused pints on Thursdays.

Brass Cannon Brewing, located at 5476 Mooretown Road in the Williamsburg area, canned a limited amount of the Muzzle Flash American Amber. It also released a Vanilla Coffee Blonde Ale earlier this month. The brewery will host a beer pairing dinner 6-9 p.m. Aug. 27 with Poor Boys Burger food truck.

Hampton’s Bull Island Brewing Company, located at 758 Settlers Landing Road, released its first pilsner, Bubba Boots Pilsner, as well as Two Finns Belgian Strong Ale.  Bull Island Brewing Company will have specialty firkins during the month.

Several of AleWerks beer month contributions have taken place outside the tasting room, with mini-tap takeovers and other events in the state.
