Black Narrows NOVA Launch Party

April 26 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Join the Evening Star Cafe as we host the official Northern Virginia debut of Black Narrows Brewing Company.

On Friday, April 26th, we will pour 6 of their amazing beers on draft alongside Black Narrows co-founder Josh Chapman!

Josh and Jenna are dear friends of ours. Before opening Black Narrows, Josh was a Sous Chef at Evening Star Cafe, and then head brewer at Bluejacket. Here are their words on returning to the Star.

β€œIt’s a coming home for us, Josh cooked here and we lived here when Em was a babe. We have fond memories sitting down at the Front Porch, dancing in the Number 9 Lounge and chowing down on eats at The Majestic many a night with the baby monitor in tow. This little brick building that holds two bars, a cafe, a bottle shop and our old apartment holds our hearts too. It wasn’t just a place where we worked and lived, inside these brick walls we dreamed up Black Narrows and longed to make Chincoteague Island home. We can’t wait to see y’all. Let’s drink to the memories made and the ones yet to be.”

Highlights from the exciting beer list include Sounding Joy, a Sour Blond Ale with peaches; Salts, an oyster Gose; and Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Night, an Imperial Stout with cocoa nibs!
