      It is with heavy hearts that we note the passing of longtime Colonial Williamsburg Foundation employee and veteran character interpreter, John Hamant.  Mr. Hamant, a Baltimore native, earned a bachelor’s degree in theater production and a master’s degree in acting and directing from the University of Arizona, but it was his love of archaeology that first...R […]
    • Handling the Heat: Animal Safety & High Temperatures
      The heat index soared this weekend, and that naturally raises questions about safety—for both our costumed interpreters and animals. Besides plenty of water, breaks, and shade, Coach & Livestock utilizes a heat index policy for working animals.  Cattle—like dogs—cannot sweat, so they are removed from work when the heat index reaches 95°.  Horses can swea […]

      The word on DoG Street is that the program changes at Colonial Williamsburg over the past few years have led to a decline in attendance. In fact, just the opposite is true.

And now the Big News!
Brass Cannon will be moving to a brand new building at 5476 Mooretown Road. They are  also be upgrading from a 4 barrel brewing system up to 20 barrels. and their new tasting room will be about 3 times the size of the current one. Projected opening date for the new location is March 2016 but the  Toano location will be open until the switch over.

The new  tasting room will be nearly 3 times the size of the current one, and will have both bar and table seating as well as plans for an outdoor beer garden area.

In these endeavors, location is key. Brass Cannon wanted a space that was closer to town than they are now, and readily accessible for guests.  The new location  lands them very close to Alewerks Brewing Company. BCB sees this as an opportunity for collaboration, and the combined presence of both breweries should be a positive thing for consumers and serve as a greater drawing power to get both locals and tourists out enjoying delicious beer.

 

Brass Cannon will be throwing a party at the brewery on Saturday, December 12. Good times and $1 off pints will be flowing from opening time at noon until at least 11pm.

Kickstarter Campaign
To help with the expansion, BCB is  running a Kickstarter campaign. Funds raised will go primarily towards improvements to the new tap room. Details and a lovely video are at their campaign site.
