HAMPTON-The Vanguard Brewpub & Distillery is celebrating its three-year anniversary with free live music featuring Anthony Rosano and The Conqueroos on March 6.

The Vanguard Brewpub & Distillery first opened its doors in March 2018 in an old building that once served as the site of The Hampton National Guard Amory Building. As part of the celebration, the brewery will be releasing a spiced version of one of its signature Belgian style beers, Namur The Merrier, a five-gallon special batch ale mixed with vanilla, cinnamon, and fig.

“We are extremely grateful and blessed to be able to celebrate our third anniversary,” said Amelia Emir, head of operations for The Vanguard Brewpub & Distillery.
