First craft brewery hops onto Virginia's Eastern Shore

First craft brewery hops onto VA's...

CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. - Virginia’s Eastern Shore is finally seeing its very first craft brewery in Chincoteague. 

Black Narrows Brewery hopes to add economic growth and agricultural production to the area.

For some background, the owners used to vacation on the island and they wanted to fulfill their dreams of opening up a shop on Chincoteague. Well their dreams have come true!

Beyond serving up seven beers on tap, they hope to serve the community as well.

For the owners, Chincoteague has always been a home away from home and they wanted to give Black Narrows that same feel. 

We're told they are focusing on local and seasonal beers rather than one particular style. 

For Valentines Day weekend, the island is hosting an event called "Death by Chocolate" and they are releasing a cocoa bean infused stout for the big event.
