New Realm Brewing, the Southeast-based craft brewery co-founded by Carey Falcone, Bob Powers and Mitch Steele, has announced plans to open a second brewery and taproom in Virginia Beach. New Realm has partnered with The Miller Group to lease the 58,000 square- foot facility which formerly housed the Green Flash Brewing Company. The announcement follows the recent purchase of brewing equipment located at the Virginia Beach facility.
“As we looked at ways to serve our growing base of New Realm fans, it was important to us that we remain a local brewer in the Southeast, expand capacity, increase innovation and stay true to our core values,” said Carey Falcone, CEO and co-founder of New Realm Brewing. “When the opportunity came up to partner with The Miller Group to lease the Virginia Beach facility, purchase newer, high-quality brewing equipment at a great value and create jobs in Virginia Beach, we knew we needed to seize it.”
The Virginia Beach brewery and taproom will be located at 1209 Craft Lane, Virginia Beach, Virginia, and New Realm expects it to open once it receives all applicable licenses and permits required for operation. The new brewery is capable of brewing 40,000 barrels annually, and will feature a tasting room with a wide variety of beers on tap, an outdoor beer garden, and private event space.
New Realm beers are currently available at its Beltline brewery and restaurant in Atlanta, as well as bars throughout Atlanta and select retail locations in Georgia.
