Intermission Beer Co. plans Henrico expansion
HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — One of the area’s newest breweries is bolstering its presence in the region.
Intermission Beer Co., which opened in summer 2017 near Virginia Center Commons mall, has increased its production capabilities as it begins distribution in the Richmond region.
Since opening 18 months ago, the company primarily has sold its wares from its 2,300-square-foot taproom at 10089 Brook Road. Intermission is owned by Courtney White, with husband Justin as head brewer.
Courtney said Intermission has begun sending kegs of its beer to restaurants in the area through Chesapeake-based Pretty Ugly Distribution. Intermission signed on with the distributor last spring, but until recently had used the deal only to pour at festivals around town.
“We wanted to sign with a newer player (in distribution),” Courtney said. “We looked at those that don’t do lifetime distribution agreements,” such as Pretty Ugly Distribution.
She said they’re not sure which restaurants they’ll distribute to, but that they’d like to have some taps in Western Henrico, Short Pump, Ashland and Mechanicsville. Intermission is distributing its milk stout, pale ale and Belgian singel.
