WILLIAMSBURG-Strangeways Brewing, based out of Richmond, officially announced on May 19 plans to open a location in the Shops at High Street on Richmond Road in Williamsburg. It will be the fourth location for the brewery.
Strangeways Brewing is taking over a 4,000 square foot space at 1430 High St. Suite 1103. The property, the former site of the clothing store Pendleton, features an outdoor space with a brick patio. The new location will have more than 300 seats for patrons.
The new Strangeways Brewing location will offer 48 of its products on draft, including beer, cider, flavored spiked sparkling seltzer, and wine as well as non-alcoholic options. Strangeways specializes in a variety of beer and brews lagers, pilsners, ales, stouts, porters, sours, barrel-aged beer, and more. Hot and cold snacks will also be available at the new site. The brewery is also partnering with other dining establishments within High Street to offer to-go or delivery meal options.
Strangeways Brewing is owned and operated by Williamsburg native Neil Burton, who looks forward to returning to the area for this latest venture.
“We are beyond thrilled to bring this passion of brewing back to my early roots in Williamsburg, and to do so in what we feel is a truly unique tasting room experience,” Burton said in a press release. “We too are very excited to join the already prolific craft beer scene Williamsburg has to offer, and one in which there is great camaraderie amongst us all.”
Strangeways Brewing will open in High Street later this summer, though an exact date has not yet been released. The brewery will be open seven days a week. Hours of operation will be Monday through Thursday, 2pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday, noon to 11pm, and Sunday, noon to 8pm. For updates, visit strangewaysbrewing.com or follow the brewery on Facebook.
