“Bull Island Brewery” Opening in Downtown Hampton

We really should’ve gone into the barrel business! Downtown Hampton is excited to announce a new brewery coming to town. Saturday, October 29th, the Bull Island Brewery will open its doors to the public. This project has been in the works for quite some time now and much progress has been made with the build-out. With this stellar location right on the water in Downtown, the views will be incredible all around.

The Brewery is specifically located in the old Dockside Ballroom, on the bottom floor of the Crowne Plaza parking garage. With 4,500 sqft, this allows the business to be a proper brewpub with space for a food-prep area. They will offer standard deli options such as hot and cold sandwiches and soups. This will be a great spot to frequent during the summer before the block party or just come by boat and tie up out front! We look forward to the Grand Opening!
