August is Virginia Craft Beer Month, and many Peninsula-area breweries are celebrating all month long!

Virginia Beer Company owner Robby Willey said his brewery has a “slew of new beer releases, events and specials going on all month long.” The special events will culminate in the release of VBC’s fall seasonal cans Sept. 2.

The brewery is releasing multiple beers this month, including the return, and canning of, Green View IPA.

Instead of hosting weekly special events, Oozlefinch Craft Brewery is releasing a new firkin every Friday in August.  Oozlefinch, located at 81 Patch Road on Fort Monroe, will host a customer appreciation day Aug. 27. Customers can wear any gear (hats, shirts, etc.) from any Virginia independent craft brewery to qualify for discounts.

Tradition Brewing Company is hosting several events and tapping specialty, limited-edition beers throughout the month.

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. The brewery is doing Randall infusion releases on Thursdays in its tasting room at 189 B Ewell Road in the Williamsburg area in addition to its regular lineup of events.

The Best Brunch Spots In Virginia - Richmond and Hampton Made the List!

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Mon, Jul 24, 2017 @ 02:53 PM

Pavilion_cafe_breakfast.jpgVirginia.org recently published a list of the 13 best brunch spots in Virginia.  The list contains spots known for quality food, service, atmosphere...and maybe most importantly, quality cocktails!  Restaurants from Northern Virginia down to Virginia Beach are known to be crowd pleasers, and a few are even located in our backyard!

Venture Kitchen & Bar—Hampton

Sunday 10am-2pm

At Venture Kitchen & Bar, brunch is serious business. Not only does the restaurant have a regular brunch menu that is reliably tasty, but they also have a rotating menu that changes every week so that you can try something new. When it comes to Sunday brunch cocktails, you’ll find some “old faithfuls” like mimosas, but there are many intriguing options as well, like the French 75 and the Queen’s Cousin.

Local Favorites: Fried Eggs Benedict, Orange Blossom Cocktail, Corned Beef Hash

Millie’s Diner—Richmond

Saturday 10am-3pm, Sunday 9am-3pm

This popular Richmond spot has been around for over 25 years, but their tasty brunch menu never gets old. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, Richmond residents flock to Millie’s Diner for one of the best brunches in the city. Although the wait can sometimes be over an hour to get in, the food is more than worth it. Plus, the bartender will fix you up with mimosas or Bloody Marys that will make the time seem to fly by.

Local Favorites: Devil’s Mess, Huevos Rancheros

The Jefferson Hotel—Richmond

Sunday 10:30am-1:30pm

If you’re planning on eating brunch at The Jefferson Hotel, make sure you are ready to “tuck in”, as they say. Sunday Champagne Brunch at this historic Richmond location has seemingly endless tables of some of the finest food imaginable, including a platter of smoked salmon and a full seafood raw bar, an impressive ham carved to order, an omelet station manned by several chefs, a lavish dessert display, and so much more (Including bottomless mimosas and coffee!). We could go on and on about this brunch, but you need to experience it yourself to understand why every Richmonder will recommend The Jefferson as a must-visit brunch destination.

 Local Favorites: Raw Seafood Bar, Omelet Station

Next time you find yourself asking, "where should we eat brunch", consider one of these local favorites!

Great restaurants...just another reason why we Love Where We Live!!!

Liz Moore Agents Complete the Hampton Home Repair Blitz

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Wed, May 10, 2017 @ 03:26 PM

IMG_6531.jpgVarious organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, Hampton Redevelopment and Housing Authority, and the City of Hampton, came together on Saturday, May 6, 2017 to complete the Hampton Home Repair Blitz. Six homeowners in the North Phoebus area had homes that received exterior repairs including painting, fascia/wooden trim replacement, railing additions, storm doors, gutter work, power washing, light landscaping and more. Interior painting, minor repairs and landscaping were also done to beautify Bryan and Moton Elementary Schools. 

Our very own Patrick Pauls masterfully built an impressive wooden platform with railing to aid a homeowner who was unable to go out the back door due to a disability and deteriorating steps.  Kaera Mims was the team lead and Nadia Anac was not only a great help with her painting skills, but she brought some friends who were so helpful! 

Hampton Home Repair Blitz...just another reason why we love where we live!
