Justin and Courtney met at TheatreVCU. She was a Stage Management major, he was a Set Design major. Justin started home brewing with a few roommates during his college years.

They both worked professionally in theater in Richmond, Williamsburg, Norfolk, and surrounding areas.

Justin got back into home brewing after they bought a house in 2007. The house quickly filled with brewing supplies so they built a garage. The garage quickly got filled with brewing supplies as well!

Shortly after Virginia Senate Bill 604 was passed in 2012, Justin and Courtney decided to open a brewery and to put their 2 passions together: Beer and the Arts!

Thus, Intermission Beer Company was formed!

Opening Day was September 1st, 2017.
