JAMES CITY-The owners of a new microbrewery are hopeful for a fall 2022 opening of their new establishment.

The site of the former Cooke’s Greenhouse and Garden Center on Jamestown Road in James City County is currently being renovated and will soon reopen as Frothy Moon Brewhouse. The new business will be the second brewery located within the county.

An existing building on the property, which is located at 1826 Jamestown Rd., is being refurbished. Half of the building will be used for the brewery’s production facilities while the remainder will be used for a taproom, coffee shop, office space, and storage. Frothy Moon Brewhouse is partnering with Aroma’s Coffeehouse to offer its products.

Also on site will be an outdoor seating area with a patio and a covered stage for live entertainment. There will also be space for food truck vendors.

Frothy Moon Brewhouse is also updating the property’s landscaping, lighting, parking lot, and entrances as part of the renovation project.

An exact opening date for the new brewery has not been released. Frothy Moon Brewhouse first received approval from the county to open for business in the summer of 2021. Frothy Moon Brewhouse will be located just down the road from James City County’s only other brewery, Billsburg Brewery. County officials are hopeful for possible collaborations between the two establishments.

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
