Back Bay Brewing Co was founded in 2011 by a group of Virginia Beach friends. With deep roots in Virginia Beach's Back Bay, Charlie Burroughs and Josh Canada were in a duck blind discussing their dream of brewing their own beer when they decided to make that dream a reality. They brought on three life-long friends and Virginia Beach natives, George Powell, Will Yearick, and Josh Malbon who all share their passion for beer and the outdoors. A year later, with each partner bringing a unique skill set, Back Bay Brewing Co. is proud to announce the release of their locally brewed False Cape Ale.
Back Bay's False Cape Ale is a full bodied red ale. With a dark copper color and well rounded malt base; a bit sweet, with a lightly hopped tea-like flavor, and an even, dextrinous body. False Cape Ale is easy to please. Look for well-rounded and balanced flavors and a pleasant, toasted malt character. A drying finish comes from Cascade dry-hopping.
Tasting room will be opening soon!
