Vibrant Shore Brewing Company
Leisa and Rhett Rebold opened Vibrant Shore Brewing Company in November 2019 in The ViBe Creative district as a way to combine the love of Craft Beer, art, community, family and friends while being a few blocks from the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Vibrant Shore started in 2023 with the purchase of our sister brewery The Garage in Chesapeake, Virginia. Also in 2023, Vibrant Shore selected Yeast Coast Distro to be their exclusive distributer in Hampton Roads. If you would like to have our beer in your restaurant, call (757) 778-5080 or email YeastCoast757@gmail.com.
Rhett is the head brewer at Vibrant Shore and started as a self taught home brewer while attending Virginia Commonwealth University for International Business. He has earned Certificates in Brewing Science from UC Davis and Siebel Institute of Technology. He won Home Brewer of the Year in 1995. His life long passion for creating true to style beer, along with creative new libations, in an artistic community has been a dream come true.
At Vibrant Shore Brewing Company – our commitment to community is unwavering. Nestled a few blocks from the sun-kissed shores of Virginia Beach , our brewery is a canvas where art, compassion, and togetherness unite.
We believe in the power of collaboration and support. That's why we proudly contribute to local agencies like Tidewater Arts Outreach, Samaritan House, The Hunter Berns Foundation, The Sinkinson Dyslexia Foundation, K-9 Justice League, LGBT Life Center, Cape Henry Lighthouse, Hope for Life, and Abby's Cancer Treatment. These partnerships empower us to actively shape a brighter future for our neighbors.
But our dedication goes beyond donations. We're also a hub for local creativity, providing artisans, musicians, and vendors a platform to showcase their craft. By fostering these connections, we strengthen our local economy and enrich Virginia Beach's artistic tapestry.
Join us at Vibrant Shore Brewing Company in celebrating a community knit together by shared passions and a genuine commitment to making a difference. Here's to the art of togetherness. Cheers!
The design and operations of our brewery are structured to incorporate environmental sustainability. Our brewery reclaims much of the heat generated in the brewing process for use in the next brew cycle, leading to less energy usage and a smaller carbon footprint. Vibrant Shore also blends its exhausted cleaning chemicals together in order to ensure any brewery wastewater is neutral or near neutral in PH before it leaves the brewery process plumbing. We use locally sourced, Virginia-based ingredients, whenever possible, helping to support local farmers. Further, we work with local farmers who use our spent grain for cattle and hog feed.
