It’s not just San Diego that appreciates Green Flash beer however. Because of high demand, Green Flash has opened a second brewery in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Alpine Beer Company

Alpine Beer Company is the home to some of the world’s favorite West Coast-style pale ales. This small diner-like BBQ brewpub is well recognized among the locals and has also developed quite a reputation among tourists, who often come to the area just for a taste of spicy brews such as the “Nelson,” “Pure Hoppiness,” and “Duet”.

Earning their reputation as “the guys who are doing it the right way,” Travis Smith and Douglas Constantiner operate their brewery by appealing to the people. By bringing highly botanical hoppy beers, Belgian ales, sours, and stouts to the local beer scene, the Societe Brewing Company has lots of local supporters.
