With 206 breweries currently in Virginia, the Newport News Tourism Development Office wants you to experience a mere four in four different cities by entering its “4 Taps/4 Cities” challenge, which kicked off July 4 and ends September 4, and introduces you to our newly developed “Toast the Coast: Beer, Wine & Shine Trail.”
Participating in “4 Taps/4 Cities” is easy. Here’s how it works:
- Download the “4 Taps/4 Cities” entry form.
- Experience one brewery in each of the following cities: Newport News, Williamsburg, Hampton and Smithfield.
- Get your entry form stamped at each location, filling all four boxes at the bottom of the form.
- Once each box is stamped, visit the Newport News Visitor Center at 13560 Jefferson Ave. in Newport News (at the entrance to Newport News Park).
As our thank you for participating, you will receive a one-of-a-kind “Toast the Coast” beer-opening koozie, plus be entered into a drawing for a grand prize that includes four tickets to a guided craft-beer tour with Taste Virginia.
Want to earn a bonus entry in the grand-prize drawing? Simply tag us on Instagram and/or Facebook using the hashtag #ToasttheCoastVA along the route. Show proof of your social media post(s) to one of our travel counselors when you turn in your completed entry form, and you’ll receive an additional entry for the grand prize!
