Brew­ery plans to open in James City County

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - Business -

Gov. Terry McAuliffe has an­nounced that Bills­burg Brew­ery will in­vest $1.4 mil­lion and cre­ate nine jobs in James City County. It will be the only craft brew­ery in the lo­cal­ity, join­ing sev­eral oth­ers in the greater Wil­liams­burg area and more than 220 across the state.

McAuliffe ap­proved a $100,000 grant from the Vir­ginia Tourism Growth Fund to as­sist with the de­vel­op­ment of Bills­burg Brew­ery, which is the brain­child of owner and county res­i­dent David Baum.

The area near Jamestown Set­tle­ment, the Jamestown-Scot­land Ferry and the Colo­nial Park­way has seen a re­vival in re­cent years, with the es­tab­lish­ment of the Jamestown Beach Event Park, plans for restora­tion of a lo­cal his­toric home into an arts venue, and plans for re­vi­tal­iz­ing James City’s ma­rina area.
