Pints for Preservation: Enjoy History Trivia and Craft Beer in Support of Cape Henry Lighthouse

Test your local history knowledge at Virginia Beach breweries during Historic Preservation Month

In partnership with Preservation Virginia, the nation’s oldest statewide historic preservation organization, the Virginia Beach Historic Preservation Commission invites you to celebrate May as Historic Preservation Month through “Pints for Preservation.” Take part in this refreshing experience at local craft breweries in support of the Cape Henry Lighthouse and its ongoing preservation needs.

Throughout the month of May, each participating brewery is donating $1 per pint sold of their specially designated Historic Preservation Month beer to support the lighthouse. The special beers are:

  • Reavenator Maibock – Reaver Beach Brewing Company
  • Without Question Light Lager – Pleasure House Brewing
  • Witty Wilde Belgian Wit. – Vibrant Shore Brewing Company

Find out how much you know about local history as your trivia team competes for prizes during the two remaining trivia nights. Each event will test your knowledge about Virginia Beach’s history starting at 7 p.m. on these dates and locations:

  • Monday, May 22, Pleasure House Brewing, 2032 Pleasure House Road
  • Thursday, May 25, Vibrant Shore Brewing, 505 18th St.

Commemorative pint glasses will also be available for a donation ($10 each; 2 for $15) during the trivia nights and all proceeds go to the lighthouse’s restoration fund.
