Brass Tap Williamsburg has been posting preview images for food and drink on its business page, but as of yet, it’s still not open.

Construction has been underway in New Town for several months, but the owner’s original timeline and hope to open in September has been delayed.

Posts on the business’s Facebook page show work is still underway at 4904 Courthouse St., and the business is not yet ready to open.

Numerous people have commented on Brass Tap’s posts asking about the opening date. In some replies, a page administrator has said the business is now hoping for November.

The page administrator also responded to a WYDaily reporter’s request for more detail, saying they would provide information once they get a “corrected timeline.”

Brass Tap will be the first location of its kind in Virginia, featuring 60 beers on tap and about 200 other craft beers available by bottle or can.

It will also sell 32-ounce growlers when it opens and have a “Brew Crew” rewards program for customers.

Brass Tap occupies two storefronts in New Town as one 3,400-square-foot space with an outdoor patio. 

Once construction is done, Brass Tap will need its final health and ABC inspections and permits to begin business.
