A little over two years ago, San Diego-based Green Flash Brewing Company announced they were locating their east coast brewery in Virginia Beach. The 58,000 sq. ft. brewing mecca that will house a tasting room and beer garden won’t be finished until next year but that’s not stopping them for hosting their annual Treasure Chest Fest there on Sunday. The festival, it’s second year in Virginia Beach, is their biggest event and charity fundraiser for Susan G. Komen For The Cure.
Green Flash will be bringing a plethora of their signature brews along with several specialty casks filled with tasty concoctions such as a double Stout w/ serrano, cinnamon & cocoa Nibs. They have also invited a number of local and regional breweries to share their fine offerings. Local favorites O’Connor Brewing Co., Reaver Beach Brewing Co., Big Ugly Brewing Co., Pleasure House Brewing, Home Republic, Smartmouth Brewing Co., Young Veterans Brewing as well as Richmond’s Hardywood Park Craft Brewing and Salem’s Parkway Brewing Co. will all be there ready to fill your glasses. Of course, you can’t have great beer without some great food. The Birch, DogStreet Pub, Eat – An American Bistro, Karnage Asada Food Truck, Lynnhaven Pub, Three Ships Coffee, Tubby’s Tavern, Whole Foods and Ynot Italian will be there offering everything from pizza to Pop-Tarts – yes, Pop-Tarts (see the Three Ships Coffee for those!).
To complete the good times trifecta is music – and two of the area’s best will be supplying the tunes. Seth Stainback & Roosterfoot along with Anthony Rosano and The Conqueroos will be sharing the bill and it won’t surprise me if they’ll trade a lick or two on each other’s set. This is definitely an event that you can’t miss.
Tickets are available online by clicking this link or you can get them there and 100% of the profit will go to our local Susan G. Komen For The Cure. The cost of your tickets includes everything from the beer tastings, food and music. I’ll be there – so if you see me, don’t be shy, say hi!
