San Diego has been been home to Green Flash Brewing Company since 2002, and in 2013 they announced their second brewery location in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This summer will mark the opening of a world-class brewing facility that will allow Green Flash to deliver fresh beer to loyal fans along the East Coast. The 58,000 square-foot facility will house a production brewery with the capacity to produce 100,000 barrels annually, a tasting room, one-acre beer garden and more. Green Flash deigned their facility to share firsthand with residents and visitors alike.
Green Flash Brewmaster Erik Jensen has been tasked with overseeing production on both coasts, which will encompass the full craft beer line up, including hop-head favorite West Coast IPA, Soul Style IPA and award-winning Le Freak. To quench the thirst of local craft beer fans, the Virginia Beach tasting room will offer uniquely Green Flash innovative, experimental brews.
The Green Flash ‘beer first’ philosophy means they are passionate about craft beer, obsessing over every detail of the brewing process, and sharing that passion with others. Green Flash is excited to take part in and make positive contributions to Virginia’s local craft community by continuing to build camaraderie among breweries and further develop the city’s craft beer culture.
Meaningful community involvement has been important to Green Flash from day one, and they already held Treasure Chest Fest, the largest fundraising initiative supporting breast cancer research, at the future site of the Virginia Beach brewery. Funds from the first two VA Treasure Chest Fests held benefited local breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen Tidewater, and they will continue to support and host this annual event.
Now, the time is nearly here— this summer the Green Flash team will raise an inaugural pint glass of fresh beer in Virginia Beach. They hope you will join them at the opening, stay tuned for details and stay connected with Green Flash Cheers!
