BEER NEWS

New brewery in the works on Patterson in western Henrico – Richmond BizSense

WayGone Brewery is looking to open in spring 2023 in the Canterbury Shopping Center at 10610 Patterson Ave. Renovations on its storefront began recently.

WayGone started in 2016 as a homebrewing operation by Tim Powell and Richard Myers. Myers declined to comment in detail for this story but said they’re looking forward to sharing more details in the future.

Last year, WayGone successfully had the Canterbury Shopping Center rezoned to allow for a brewery. The shopping center is owned by The Wilton Cos., and Wilton Vice President Hunt Gunter said WayGone leased the final available space in the shopping center.

Short Pump Town Center seeks open container ABC license

Soon you might be able to sip and shop at the Far West End mall.

From Richmond BizSense:

Short Pump Town Center wants to allow people to walk around the mall with alcoholic beverages open and in hand.

The Henrico County mall recently filed a request with the Virginia ABC for one of the alcohol control agency’s commercial lifestyle center licenses, which would allow Short Pump’s visitors to consume alcoholic beverages in the mall’s common areas. The mall hopes to offer the perk no later than spring 2023.

“In short, it is similar to an ‘open container’ license and will allow visitors over the age of 21 to take their purchased alcoholic beverages (bought at one of our tenant restaurants) out with them while they shop,” said a spokeswoman for Brookfield Properties, the New York firm that co-owns the mall.

The company offers similar open-container programs at other properties in its portfolio.

Richmond BizSense Reporting Goatcado Moving into Forest Hill Avenue Spot

There is no timeline for when the Goatcado will be up and running.

Published

In the spot that held a fish market, Dixie Chicken then Happy Empanada there will be a new eatery. Goatcado will be setting up. The three store strip is currently home to Current Culture Fly a shop focused on fly-fishing.

From Richmond BizSense

The fast-casual eatery is planning to open an outpost in the strip center at 1205 Westover Hills Blvd., while keeping its existing West Main Street location in the Fan.

Its 3,800-square-foot Southside storefront will be next to Current Culture Fly, a fly fishing shop that opened earlier this year.

Goatocado owner Ian Newell said he’s taking over the remaining two suites in the center: one going to Goatocado and the other for a to-be-determined concept.

“Goatocado is still doing well. I think it’s a solid model, it’s a good offering for both locations – fast-casual, kind of health food,” Newell said, adding that the menu at the Southside location will be similar to that of the Fan location.

Goatcado has one other brick and mortar spot on West Main Street in the Fan. Goatcado started as a food cart (still in operation) and serves up veggie focused bowls and wraps. Most of which is grown on their own farm. You can check out the menu here.

BEER NEWS

Not local news but important Wold Cup news for all my footie fans out there.

DC Council approves measure allowing bars to stay open 24 hours during World Cup – WTOP

D.C. Council passed an emergency measure to allow bars, restaurants and breweries in the District to stay open 24 hours a day during the World Cup, which will take place from Nov. 20 to Dec. 18 in Qatar.

Places that sell alcohol normally would close at 2 a.m. on weekdays and at 3 a.m. on weekends.

Now they will be able to sell booze until 4 a.m. and remain open 24 hours, but they would have to pause their alcohol service between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m.
