Coastal Virginia (COVA) is currently home to 16 craft breweries with several others scheduled to open soon. Because the COVA region encompasses a large, spread-out geographic region, we suggest three primary sections to get the most out of your brewery touring experience.

A full day should be devoted to each – The Peninsula, Virginia Beach and Norfolk. Since Smithfield and Chesapeake have only one craft brewery, either of these can be included as “add-ons” before the Norfolk tour.

For more details on each brewery visit our Brewery Guide. Be sure to check each brewery’s website or Facebook page for seasonal/limited beer release dates.
