The place smelled pretty bad when I walked in, like body odor and something awful. It was probably the dog that was walking around licking stuff. The place was pretty crowded but there was enough seating. The wait staff were nice but clearly overwhelmed with people waiting for pints and growlers, trying to get a few bites to eat in-between serving customers. The crowd was largely comprised of younger drinkers and the place really had the vibe of a college dive bar versus the old-timer veterans feel; random torn chairs and couches with a few tables and knickknacks were strewn about like a dorm room. Definitely more of an emphasis "young" than "veterans." There were a lot of flies and other bugs inside the building to the point where I had to keep fanning over my glass to keep them from diving into my beer. The bar was very short, allowing only a few people to stand or sit near which causes a line to spill out into the seating area (another room). They do offer active and veteran military discounts on beer, and I noticed various fund-raiser fliers scattered around inside which are both very commendable. The beer was also very good. This just isn't the environment I would want to enjoy it in. I recommend filling growlers and going from there...

Traveled from mass on a basketball tournament vacation and sought these guys out after being recommended by some local beer drinkers. Due to my schedule we showed up 2 hours before they opened. Not only did they let me in, they were extremely hospitable, friendly, and deservedly proud! All four of the beers I sampled were tremendous, the double ipa was my favorite however the citra hop ipa was fantastic as was the stout! Getting ready to have the pineapple grenade!! Great beer, great people, all around reccomend!!!

The overall atmosphere of the taproom is good. There is cool copper and wood art in the tasting room. The bar only has four stools, but that is overcome by the appearance of the attractive bartenders. Favorites from this brewery so far are the rye ipa, IPL, and their honey blonde.

Read previous review and had my worries about seating and the place was crowded on a Saturday at 4:30. That being said, maybe others complained of seating b/c the seating in the front area is small but they have a back area for seating as well so my wife and I did not have to stand. The service was quick and friendly and after my wife and I finished our flight someone came up to ask if we wanted anything, which we ordered a pint of our favorites, and they were on our table in about a minute. We actually ate there - some great local brick oven pizza "food truck" (not really a truck) but I guess the food trucks rotate so it's hit or miss. As for the beer, a few of the six they make right now are really good and I'd have to say that this is the best brewery in the Va Beach/Norfolk area (still give Williamsburg the thumbs up in the entire 757).
