Virginia's Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine has partnered with Green Flash Brewing Co. to create the specialty craft brewery's first local beer release – Green Flash Ynot Session IPA.
According to a news release, Green Flash has confirmed plans for a fall 2014 groundbreaking for its second brewing facility in Virginia Beach located on General Booth Boulevard. The new brewery is slated to open in 2016 as the San Diego-based company expands to more efficiently ship beer east of the Mississippi.
Ynot Session IPA will debut as the first Green Flash locals-only beer release, available in Hampton Roads, Va., at Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine and in San Diego in the Green Flash Tasting Room on draft only. In celebration of Virginia Craft Beer Month, Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine will tap Ynot Session IPA throughout August at each of its five locations in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Norfolk.
"We're truly honored to team up with Green Flash," Tony DiSilvestro, co-owner of Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine, said in the release. "Their investment in this community will create new and exciting opportunities for our area, and we're happy to help welcome them to the neighborhood by serving this special new release, named in our honor."
