The Garage Brewery is a 7 barrel microbrewery located in the heart of the Greenbrier area in Chesapeake, Virginia. At the center of the business is Ulyana Wingard, a local entrepreneur and investor, but more importantly, a lover of craft beer. She has been enthusiastic about craft beer since entering her first craft brewery 5 years ago. Since then, Ulyana has been developing the idea of starting her own brewery to one day contribute and instigate growth into the community. In 2019 her dream came true with the conception and opening of The Garage Brewery. Ulyana is dedicated to enriching the community and supplying beer lovers with delicious brews and an open, friendly environment.
Our Head Brewer, Will, has been with the Garage since its inception in 2019! His love of problem-solving, exploration, and creativity inspired his move from music education to the diverse industry of craft beer. Striving to create accurate to-style brews while innovating on a constant stream of beer varieties, he is always working hard to give you interesting and refreshing beer while you're inside the taproom.
You will likely see him being goofy and chatting in the taproom during opening hours after brew days. Feel free to say hello!
Fun Fact: Will's favorite animal is a humpback whale, but he would be overjoyed to meet any dog you bring into our dog-friendly space!!
Chelsea started here as a beertender when the Garage opened and has quickly established herself as our General Manager! She came from the world of cosmetology, having been an instructor with Paul Mitchell. She handles everything in the taproom, to include reservations, food trucks, events, and much more!
You'll see her in the taproom running trivia and music bingo nights or hanging out with the Garage crew during the day!
Fun Fact: Chelsea knows how to ride a unicycle and is one of our resident walking tattoo murals!
