Commentary: Craft beer’s untapped market

Nationally (and locally), less than 4 percent of black drinkers enjoy craft beer. While I’m often one of the few people of color, I’ve never really felt out of place. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t notice the lack of diversity, or find it a bit odd.

Just needs carbonation, he said, and Mermaid’s Scorn, a light German-style ale made with ocean water and Hampton Roads oysters, is good to go. When Norfolk’s newest brewery launches this Saturday, it will serve up the briny taste of home. Tennant, Benchtop Brewing Co.’s owner and brewer, said he wanted to make a statement right out the gate. A sour beer with local ingredients was...

Jason Marks, Erica Greenway and Darrell Cuenca create Deadline Brewing

Cuenca known for experimental beers. The burgeoning craft beer scene on Shore Drive is about to get a new addition as a trio of longtime friends with roots in local media have started planning Virginia Beach’s newest brewery. Darrell Cuenca, a brewer at Big Ugly Brewing Company since its opening in February 2015, has parted ways with the Chesapeake brewery to pursue a new venture with former roommates and local TV news personalities Jason Marks and Erica Greenway. “I never thought I would actually own a brewery,” Cuenca says. “It just kind...
