Legend Brewing Co. Will Open a Second Brewpub in Portsmouth

Posted By on Tue, Oct 11, 2016 at 1:00 AM

Legend Brewing Co. is expanding to Portsmouth in the spring, reports Virginia Craft Beer. The Richmond company will open an 80-seat brewpub with a 70-seat patio and a three-barrel brewing system. Instead of shipping its beer staples directly from the Richmond brewery to the new spot, Legend will use local distributor Hoffman Beverage Company.

One reason Legend chose this particular location for expansion was that it was reminiscent of the brewpub in Manchester, vice-president Dave Gott says.

“‘In Richmond, Legend Brewing Co. is known for its views,’” Virginia Craft Beer quotes Gott as saying. “‘The historical downtown Portsmouth is a good fit for us and it fits the kind of atmosphere we want for our customers.’”
