The Virginia Beer Company Named Small Business Of The Year

WILLIAMSBURG-The Virginia Beer Company has been named 2021 Small Business of The Year by the Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance-Business Council.

Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance-Business Council made the announcement on June 24. In addition, The Prescription Shoppe was named the 2021 Early Stage Small Business of the Year. Both businesses received recognition in part for their contributions to the Greater Williamsburg community throughout the covid-19 pandemic.

Local pharmacists and husband-and-wife team Dr. Henry Ranger and Dr. Jade Ranger opened The Prescription Shoppe in 2019. The Prescription Shoppe has been instrumental in providing the covid-19 vaccine to members of the community. The Prescription Shoppe also created the “Local Supporting Local” campaign to unite the community throughout the pandemic.

This year’s crop of Small Business of the Year nominees included The UPS Store at Quarterpath, Saving Grace Home Care, Parkway Printshop, Paddle On of Williamsburg, James A. Burden & Associates, Compass Wealth Strategies, Bicast, and Berret’s Seafood Restaurant & Taphouse Grill.
