Richmond-Based Strangeways Brewing Looking To Open A New Location In Williamsburg

WILLIAMSBURG-A new brewery may soon be popping up in the Greater Williamsburg area.

Strangeways Brewing, which currently has locations in Richmond and Fredericksburg, is proposing opening another location in Williamsburg in the High Street mixed-used development.

The City of Williamsburg’s Planning Commission will receive information about the proposed project at its meeting in April. Strangeways Brewing plans to request an amendment to the city’s zoning ordinance for the area to add a “micro-brewery, micro-distillery, micro-winery and/or micro-cidery, with a capacity of not more than 15,000 barrels per year.”

In addition, Strangeways Brewing is seeking a special use permit in order to operate a restaurant and micro-brewery at 1430-1103 High Street, which is on the corner of High Street and Richmond Road. The brewery would operate in the same building that houses the Aticha Thai restaurant and other businesses. A public hearing on the matter is currently scheduled for April 20.

Strangeways Brewing, which first opened in 2013, has two locations in Richmond and one in Fredericksburg. If approved, the new location in High Street would be the seventh brewery in the Greater Williamsburg area, which also includes the new Frothy Moon Brewhouse that will open later this year in James City County.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, 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 (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). 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 free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 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
