Full-bodied with a clean, dry finish and mild bitterness with dank, juicy, citrusy notes. This 100% Citra Double India Pale Ale is brewed with concentrated Citra Cryo Hops, and Double Dry-Hopped with more Citra at a rate of 3 lbs. per barrel. The result is a full-bodied 8.0% ABV offering with a clean, dry finish and a tightrope balance of the dank, juicy, and citrusy flavors that made Citra famous.
We are a former financial analyst, a former consultant, and a former high school teacher turned professional brewer joining forces to open a community-based and philanthropy-focused force for good in the form of a brewery! The seed for such a business was sown in 2007, during the co-founders’ time at the nearby College of William & Mary (over a beer or two at the local craft beer bar, if we’re honest).
In 2010, “We could do it?” became “We should do it!” and research & planning began in earnest. The search for a suitable facility began in 2012, and following more than two years of agonizing near-misses and endless building tours, we finally found our home, less than two miles from the heart of Downtown Williamsburg. 401 Second Street is now the home of The Virginia Beer Company!
