On our first visit to Virginia Beach, we were very happy to find Back Bay Brewing. Back Bay had great beers on tap and it was a friendly environment. We will especially remember that visit because we received a call that our first grandchild was...More

If you want to avoid the insurmountable crowds at Green Flash and be more local then this is the brewery for you. That said, I am an IPA fan and found these kinda bland. FYI, they don't do flights for tastings, only 4oz pours and...More
