Green Flash Celebrates Official Grand Opening

First East Coast Operation for San Diego-based Brewery

Green Flash Co-founders, Mike and Lisa Hinkley, were joined by Virginia Beach Mayor William D. Sessoms, Jr. and Virginia Beach Economic Development Director Warren D. Harris at the official grand opening event of the craft brewery’s new location in Virginia Beach on November 13. The grand opening ceremony featured a commemorative cask tapping and ceremonious fly-over by a retired military plane. In addition to the opening ceremony, the event offered visitors a sampling of the beer and experiential event programming Green Flash will be offering at its new East Coast brewing facility and tasting room.


The $20 million facility includes a 58,000-square-foot Green Flash brewery, family friendly tasting room with 30 Green Flash beers on tap, a beer garden, food trucks, retail store, and private-event room and garden at the corner of General Booth Blvd. and Corporate Landing. The grand opening marks the next chapter for Green Flash, the 45th largest craft brewery in the United States, poising the brewery for continued national growth.
