YORK-The opening of Beale’s Brewery taproom in Yorktown has been delayed.
The brewery was hoping to open this past summer but construction was halted temporarily due to the shortage of construction materials as well as increased costs of supplies as a result of the shortage.
Construction only recently began and is expected to be completed in about six months. Beale’s Brewery will tentatively open in early 2022.
Beale’s Brewery will be located at 7120 George Washington Memorial Highway. It will be second location for Beale’s, which first opened in Bedford, Va.
Beale’s specializes in lagers and German style beers. The brewery in Bedford also has a menu with a focus on barbeque dishes, while the Yorktown taproom will serve food with a seafood concept.
The new brewery will carry a variety of Beale’s flagship brews as well as small-batch beer releases exclusive to Yorktown. Beale’s Brewery will also have ample indoor and outdoor seating, including a pet-friendly patio.
Beale’s Brewery first announced plans to bring a location to York County about three years ago.
“This has been a long time coming,” said Emily Sanfratella, a partner in Beales Brewery as well as chief operating officer of Waukeshaw Development, which is spearheading the project. “There’s been a lot of enthusiasm for this project, and we are very much looking forward to the day when we finally open our doors.”
