Beer in Hampton Roads- The Casual Pint
Updated: Jun 8, 2019
If you love craft beer as much as Mike and I, then Hampton Roads is probably a place worth checking out. I'm not exactly sure as to just how many breweries we have in the area, but it seems like anywhere you travel in Hampton Roads, you are never more than a mile from a brewery. We weren't who to reach out to when deciding on a guest for our episode on beer. With so many breweries that we love, it was hard to settle on just one.
Mike came up with the great idea of reaching out to the guys at The Casual Pint to help us out. The owners are a great family to talk to and their knowledge of beer is like no other. The establishment they are running in Landstown is also like no other. The Casual Pint is more than just a bar, its a craft beer market and an experience all rolled into one. Walk up to the bar and you'll be greeted by a great staff that can help you narrow down what you are looking to sip on. They've got something for everyone. Over 300 beers in the place is enough to satisfy anyone's curiosity. Hungry? These guys definitely have that covered. Their small menu is packed full of flavor (Hint: These guys are originally from Maryland, try the crab cake!). The overall atmosphere is fun and reminiscent of an old English pub.
In this episode, Chuck and Zac lay it all out for us. They talk about how they got started, the ups and downs of running an establishment, how they keep the taps flowing, and how they decide what goes on tap and what they are stocking. These guys are fun and entertaining and we will continue to drink their beers as long as they continue to allow us in their establishment. We look forward to having them on our show again to discuss more topics and more importantly, we look forward to meeting you at the Casual Pint for a beer or two!
The Casual Pint is located at 3380 Princess Anne Rd Suite 111, Virginia Beach, VA 23456. You can check out their menu and draft selection at virginiabeach.thecasualpint.com
