Legend, Vasen tap new breweries
RICHMOND, Va. — Richmond’s oldest and newest beer makers have begun pouring in their new digs.
Legend Brewing opened its new satellite taproom today in Portsmouth, while Vasen Brewing Co. opened in Scott’s Addition over the weekend.
Like Legend’s flagship location in Manchester, which opened in 1994, its 4,300-square-foot facility in Portsmouth is a full-service brewpub with 20 taps of Legend beer and in-house restaurant. It’s dubbed Legend Brewing Depot and is located at 1 High St. in the heart of Olde Towne Portsmouth.
Legend VP of operations Dave Gott said the new location has views of the Elizabeth River that rival the Manchester location’s views of the James.
“We’ll definitely do special beers for it,” Gott said. No Portsmouth-exclusive beers have been brewed yet, but he said an Oyster stout or Kolsch may be in the works.
Legend Brewing Depot will have a grand opening with Gov. Terry McAuliffe present on Aug. 14.
