JAMES CITY-A new microbrewery called Frothy Moon Brewhouse is on its way to James City County.

At its September 14 meeting, the James City County Board of Supervisors officially gave the go ahead for the new microbrewery to move into the county on Jamestown Road. Frothy Moon Brewhouse will be the second brewery within James City County and will be located just down the road from the county’s first brewery, Billsburg Brewery.

“We are excited to have another brewery developing within our community,” Scott Stevens, James City County Administrator, said in a recent county podcast, adding that there could be an opportunity for “synergy” between Frothy Moon Brewhouse and Billsburg Brewery.

Frothy Moon Brewhouse first announced plans this past summer to renovate the former site of Cooke’s Greenhouse and Garden Center and reopen as a brewery. The brewery will include a taproom and will partner with Aroma’s to also offer coffee on site.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
