Triple Crossing crossing the river with new Chesterfield taproom

A brewery from the city is taking a flight out to the suburbs.

Triple Crossing Beer is preparing to open a location in Blackwood Development’s 25-acre Winterfield Crossing mixed-use project in Midlothian.

The brewery will open in a 3,000-square-foot standalone building designed by Perretz & Young Architects. Blackwood’s Nolen Blackwood said the brewery also will have a few more thousand square feet of outdoor patio space facing a pond in the development.

“We’re creating a boardwalk on the pond, and want it to be an entertainment area,” Blackwood said. “Hopefully, we can get a couple more restaurants over there.”

The brewery is aiming to open in late 2021 or early 2022. Both of its locations in the city remain open.

Since opening on Foushee Street downtown in 2014, Triple Crossing has built a dedicated following of fans — thanks in part to its popular Falcon Smash IPA.

In 2016, it cut the ribbon on a 30,000-square-foot production facility in Fulton, complete with a pizza operation run by Billy Fallen of Billy Pie.

The brewery, in a social media post Monday, wrote that the new Midlothian spot will have offerings similar to its other two outposts, though the Midlothian location will pour beers that have been fermented in an open setting, a process that it says will produce more unique brews.

Winterfield Crossing, which has been in the works since 2015, along Midlothian Turnpike and Winterfield Road, includes over 400 apartments that are mixed as market-rate and age-restricted, 100,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and about 20,000-square-feet of office space.

The development has been able to hook both local and national commercial tenants. Its other local tenants include Carytown Bicycle Co., coworking chain Gather and Hot Chick, a restaurant from EAT Restaurant Partners.

Its national tenants include fitness studio Row House, burger joint Burgerim, Starbucks and Aldi. Blackwood said they also recently signed Qdoba, which will open a drive-through location.

Chesterfield has seen a handful of new breweries pour into the county in recent years, including Dancing Kilt Brewery, which opened earlier this year, and Molly’s Blind Dog Brewery last year.

Also in the works in the Moseley section of the county is Hidden Wit Brewing Co., run in part by Brad Cooper, whose Steam Bell Beer Works was among the first breweries to open in Chesterfield since the modern boom.

Where is all the water (H2O) coming from to produce all this beer? With the Aquifers getting depleted everyday at an even faster rate it will be no surprise when all the fresh water will be at a premium…just for BASIC necessities.

Who is going to PAY to put back this valuable resource???

What a great addition to this area…something unique besides another fast food joint. Should be a big hit!!

This is a great thing for continuing to create more “village” in Midlothian village! I can’t wait.

(Hmmm. My only questions are about the building. At first glance, it kind of looks like a bank to me, or maybe even an oil change place, but perhaps that is the idea. Maybe when it’s built it will have more of a unique presence.)
