Precarious Beer Project to Expand with Brewery, Eatery, and Entertainment Venue in Colonial Williamsburg

Precarious Beer Project, the on-site brewery arm of popular Amber Ox Public House, will soon be expanding.  Plans are in the works to develop a broader, innovative Beer Hall experience that includes a  brewery, taco eatery, live entertainment venue, and arcade in the Henry Street Shops of Colonial Williamsburg. The 9,700 square foot space encompasses the sites formerly used by Season’s Restaurant and Stefano’s Pizza.

“This new project will help us grow the Precarious Beer brand, in addition to positively impacting the food and beverage scene in Williamsburg,” says Andrew Voss, co-owner with Chris Cook of the Amber Ox. “We will still continue to do experimental, small batch brewing at the Amber Ox. But with this larger space, we’ll be able to increase the production and packaging of our more highly requested beers, in addition to starting a comprehensive barrel aging and souring program”.  Greg Fleehart, Head Brewer of the Precarious Beer Project at Amber Ox, will also oversee the new brewery location.

The project will include much more than just a brewery, by expanding the concept of a traditional Beer Hall. It will offer a street-style taco eatery which, like Amber Ox, focuses on locally sourced, seasonally inspired ingredients that compliment the beers guests choose. The taco shop will provide patrons and the Williamsburg visitors a delicious and economical place to eat. To round out the Precarious Beer Hall, an arcade featuring about two dozen vintage games along with a dozen pinball and skee-ball games. There will also be a stage for live entertainment.

“This will be a multi-purpose entertainment space and will offer a late-night experience,” Voss explains, noting that he and Cook have been dedicated to keeping their new venture within Colonial Williamsburg. Voss and Cook plan to invest over $2.5 Million into the project, while also creating over 60 new jobs within the City.

A Summer 2019 opening is planned.

All the best to Andrew Voss, Chris Cook and Greg Fleehart for bringing this exciting concept to the ‘burg!
