Billsburg Brewery Opens at James City County Marina

Billsburg Grand Opening

James City County is pleased to announce that Billsburg Brewery had a ribbon cutting on Oct. 27 to kick off their grand opening weekend. Billsburg Brewery will celebrate their grand opening Oct. 27-29 with fresh beer and food trucks. Billsburg Brewery is the first craft brewery of its kind in the County and is located at 2054 Jamestown Road at the James City County Marina.

Billsburg Brewery utilizes existing space at the James City County Marina for their taproom and a new building was constructed for their brewing operation. The recreational opportunities will remain at the marina including boat ramp, equipment rentals and Jamestown Discovery Boat Tours.

Billsburg Brewery represents a $1.4 million investment in the County and is expected to create nine jobs. Last month, Billsburg Brewery received a $100,000 grant from the Virginia Tourism Growth Fund. A video of the presentation is available on YouTube.

“We are thrilled to open Billsburg Brewery after months of work to create a destination brewery where visitors and the community can come to enjoy meticulously-brewed craft beer and stay to enjoy surrounding local attractions,” said David Baum, owner of Billsburg Brewery. “Working in partnership with the Economic Development Authority of James City County and James City County staff has been a great experience.”

“With a beautiful tasting room and views of the James City County Marina, the brewery will be an establishment that attracts visitors and residents alike, our long term goal for James City County is to simply enhance our offerings. Tourism plays a major role in our local economy, and Billsburg Brewery will provide a unique visitor experience aligning our model of sustainable options for fun in the Jamestown Road corridor,” said Bryan Hill, County Administrator for James City County.

Billsburg Brewery joins numerous other attractions in the Jamestown Road corridor including Jamestown Beach Event Park, Jamestown Settlement, Historic Jamestowne, the Virginia Capital Trail, the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry and the Colonial Parkway.
