YORK-Brass Cannon Brewing is celebrating a decade of serving craft beverages to the Greater Williamsburg area.

The veteran-owned brewery, one of the first to emerge onto Williamsburg’s craft beverage scene, first opened in Toano in 2012. The establishment relocated to a larger space in its current location at 5476 Mooretown Rd. almost six years ago.

“It’s been a cool thing to have been in business for the past ten years,” said Phil Norfolk, the brewery’s co-founder and general manager, in a phone interview on March 29. “It’s been a good journey, especially given the last few years.”

Brass Cannon Brewing specializes in a variety of different styles of craft beers, including stouts, ales, sours, and IPAs. The beer is only available at the brewery’s taproom, which is called The Cannon.

The brewery will honor its first decade in business with an anniversary celebration featuring music, food, and brews on Saturday, April 2. From 6pm to 9pm, patrons can listen to live music by Wyatt Baldwin and enjoy food from Kribside Dawgs and Hawgs.

“We are looking forward to everyone having a good time,” Norfolk said.

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 feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
