Where and when will the pre-order site be open for orders
The link to order will go live on Wednesday, February 23, at 10am EST on our smartmouthbrewing.com website.

Who can pick up my order?
The name on the pre-order must match the name of the person picking up the order. We will check ID’s to make sure everyone is 21 and that the person matches the pre-order details.

How will pre-order pick-ups work?
When you purchase your beers through our online pre-order website, you will choose a pick-up date/time on Saturday March 5 or Sunday March 6 or you can pick up during open hours starting March 7 (please note that Virginia Beach is not open on Mondays).  Pre-orders will have their own separate pick-up spot. Pre-order items may only be collected during the assigned pick-up window. You may choose to pick up in Norfolk or Virginia Beach (please note that the Pilot House is not open on Mondays). ALL ORDERS MUST BE PICKED UP BY FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2022.

If you miss your pick-up time, you may come anytime after Monday, March 7 until Friday, March 18, to pick up your beer.
