Wasserhund Brewing Company, meaning "water dog" in German, was born from a love of the beach, dogs, and German beer. We aspire to bring the German beer culture to Virginia Beach in the best way... by brewing the highest quality ales and lagers and providing the environment to enjoy them with family, friends, and just good company.

We also match our beer with artisan pizza made to order in our brick oven. Or you can order beer sausages and add some sauerkraut for a real German experience.

Call it whatever you want... we call it German style brewing with a Beach kick. Really, it's great beer and great times.



Owners, Aaron and Christine Holley, both graduated from Kellam High School (Class of '06) and Virginia Tech (Class of '10). They spent five years in Northern Virginia, where Aaron was active duty in the US Navy and Christine was an engineer in the semiconductor manufacturing industry. Most importantly, they were perfecting beer recipes in their 5 gallon homebrew setup. After a trip to Germany, they decided their dream would be to open a brewery that would bring a piece of the German beer culture to Virginia Beach. From their passion for the brewing process, beer engineering, and love of good times with great people; Aaron and Christine have developed Wasserhund Brewing Company.
