The Miller Group and New Realm Brewing Company are thrilled to announce the development of a new brewery and restaurant located in the new Blue Point at the Riverfront development in Suffolk, Virginia. The 6,000 square-foot facility, will include a 5-barrel brewhouse, restaurant, covered rooftop patio, bar and an 8,000 square-foot beer garden, that will feature an outdoor bar, covered patio and be dog friendly. The location is anticipated to be open to the public in the Spring of 2023
The Suffolk location will feature the company’s handcrafted lineup of award-winning craft beers, and limited specialty releases created and brewed by New Realm’s Brewmaster Mitch Steele, who is recognized as one of the craft beer industry’s best brewers. The on-site scratch kitchen will be serving New Realm classics such as the New Realm Burger, the Instagram-famous Mac & Cheese, as well as locally sourced specialties. Complementing New Realm’s high-quality fare and craft beer will be seasonal live music in the outdoor beer garden.
“We have been deeply touched by our warm and hospitable welcome to Virginia Beach and we have searched for a second location that would provide us the opportunity to expand our footprint in Virginia,” shared Carey Falcone, Co-Founder and CEO of New Realm. “One look at the plans for Blue Point at the Riverfront and we knew that we found a second home in this great state. Our entire team is excited to bring our locally sourced scratch kitchen and our craft beer & spirits to the City of Suffolk!”
“We are thrilled to welcome New Realm Brewing and Distilling to Suffolk, Virginia. Having worked with them in Virginia Beach we know that they have an excellent executive team, solid values, and an amazing track record in Virginia, Georgia, and South Carolina. New Realm’s brewery, taproom and restaurant will support job creation and draw visitors from the region year-round.” Said Jerry Miller, Owner and CEO of The Miller Group, the developer of Blue Point at the Riverfront.
New Realm’s brewery and restaurant is expected to create over 60 new jobs in the local Suffolk area. The Company is focused on positively impacting the communities in which it operates, and maintains a firm commitment to environmental sustainability, supporting local and independent craft communities, and the art and science of great craft brewing and distilling.
New Realm products are available at its locations, as well as at bars and retail outlets throughout Georgia, Virginia, South Carolina and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Suffolk facility will be New Realm’s sixth location.
“We are seeing the evolution of Suffolk. Businesses come where the people are so what we’re seeing is with our growth and our population and our demographics, that in turn attracts private investment” Mayor Michael Duman said at yesterday's Suffolk State of the City address.
