Breweries, distilleries in Va. Beach can now prepare and serve food

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — City council on Tuesday approved new rules to allow breweries and distilleries in the Resort City to prepare and serve food.

Until now, rules required businesses to only sell beverages.

The planning commission says they’ve been working with several breweries as demand has increased in recent years.

Each establishment must receive proper permits and they’ll be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
