Enjoyable tasting room with the occasional food truck on site. Each of their beers shows that these folks care about the details. No cookie cutter batches here, complex flavorful brews of several varieties. Staff can be snappy, which may be linked to the size of the facility and number of customers because it is often busy with lines around the perimeter of the room. Go for the growler power hour (Sat 12-2) and fill for $5 off normal price. Notch 9 should be their flagship, not Alter Ego.

Been to this brewery a few times and my beer club has events here from time to time. It isn't really fair to judge this place against the other local breweries because it is new, fresh and clean. But it is a very very nice looking brewery/tap room. Plenty of space, nice natural light and a very friendly staff.
Since they started out they have certainly improved on their lineup, my only knock on them right now is they do not make an imperial stout, one of my favorite styles, but they'll get there.
The just won bronze at GABF for their Notch 9 DIPA, which is pretty impressive, and it is a great beer, I just hope they continue improving as it seems they have the most potential of the Hampton Roads breweries, but that may change when O'Connor and Beach get new facilities.

A great new brewery in the Ghent area of Norfolk. Recently went to the tasting room for a flight of their beers and to get a growler fill (Growler Happy Hour is a great deal.) Also took the quick, interesting tour. They are very proud of making good beer and eager on growth in the near future. Conveniently located to stop at The Birch and O'Connors on the same day.

I stumbled across this gem while trying to find directions to O'Connor's Brewing Company yesterday. My friend and I were looking to tour the local breweries and had no idea that this one existed. The greatest perk was finding out that it was about 2 minutes drive to my favorite craft beer bar.
The atmosphere is really nice, albeit a bit loud. As you walk into the front door, you enter a large tasting room that overlooks the brewing equipment from behind a glass wall. Giant chalkboard are on either side of the tasting room; one with the beers on tap and a price list of items to purchase, the other is a drawing that resembles what they stand for.
I took the tour of the brewery, which was hosted by Noel (funny and quick-witted) and learned a lot about the brewery, including the investors behind the it all. Accompanying me on the tour was a fresh pour of Notch 9, their signature DIPA which was outstanding (left with a growler full)!
Everyone was very personable and never too busy to answer your questions or help you. My hat is off to the staff and look forward to visiting more often. You guys have a great thing going!
