757 region craft breweries have enjoyed another outstanding year with accolades coming from global, national, statewide, and regional sources.
With all of these great things happening in our Coastal Virginia beer scene, it is our pleasure to announce the 2023 Veer Magazine Golden Tap Award nominees.
From October 15 through November 15, we invite our readers to cast your vote in each of the following categories (see below).
Each brewery/cider-maker was invited to self-nominate one entry in any 10 categories.
We will present gold, silver and bronze medals in each category during our annual Golden Tap Awards ceremony. This year the date is Tuesday, December 5. Elation Brewing is playing host for the program, which begins at 6 PM. Admission will be free. Proceeds from the sales a special Hope Lager will go to Hope House Foundation.
And big thanks to this year’s presenting sponsors: City of Norfolk Department of Economic Development and Spacemakers General Contractors. Additional sponsorship provided by Southern Bank and Freedom Boat Club.

The awards winners are determined by online readers’ votes and our secret-shopper panel of beer experts. The Golden Tap will go to the brewery or cider-maker that accumulates the most points where gold medals count as 3 points, 2 for silver and 1 for bronze.

Best of luck to each and all.
