York County and Waukeshaw Development announced today that a new Beale's brewpub is destined for the Rt. 17 corridor, projected to open in spring 2021. The brewpub will be located in the 7100 block of George Washington Memorial Highway (Route 17). Waukeshaw Development plans to build the 4,000 square foot facility on land currently owned by the Economic Development Authority.
"This is exactly what we've been working toward since purchasing the property," said R. Anderson Moberg, Chairman of York County's Economic Development Authority. The property has been connected to the County's water, sewer, and storm-water infrastructure, making it even more appealing to this developer.
"The revitalization of Route 17 is a top priority of the Board of Supervisors," said Jim Noel, Director of the Office of Economic Development. "The Economic Development Authority is pleased to have attracted Waukeshaw Development to these parcels on Route 17, and with private investments already made along this major corridor, we are confident that the addition of this unique dining establishment will reflect positively on our efforts and result in additional business developments and add to the quality of life in York County.
"Waukeshaw Development is known for its revitalization of properties with several success stories from throughout the commonwealth," Noel said. "This new brewpub will be similar to Waukeshaw's Beale's Brewery located in Bedford, Virginia, and will feature its home-made brews along with a menu representing our area's connection to the water and local seafood."
"We are thrilled to be extending the Beale's brand east across the Commonwealth to York. We have had nothing but great experiences so far in York County, and have found the entire team to be progressive, creative and fun to work with. We are excited to present a completely new offering to the County," said Waukeshaw President, Dave McCormack.
An outdoor patio with seating, space for live acoustic entertainment, a family-friendly atmosphere, and ample parking, are included in the vision for this restaurant. Still in its early planning stages, ground-breaking ceremonies for this new restaurant are planned for January 2020 with completion in the early months of 2021.
More information will be released as plans are finalized. For more information about Waukeshaw, visit https://waukeshaw.com.
