Jerry Bailey began homebrewing with friends in 1989, hopeful that the craft would bring fulfillment that his 9-to-5 failed to provide. Fulfillment it brought, along with numerous batches of tasty brew. Bailey couldn’t keep his inventions to himself; he quickly decided to open his own brewhouse as well as distribute his goods to other local establishments.

Today, Bailey proudly stands at the helm of both Old Dominion Brewhouse and Old Dominion Brewing Company. In the pub, chefs add variety to liquid meals with food such as burgers, crab cakes, and thin-crust pizzas while 30 flat-screen televisions keep patrons entertained with sports. The chefs also exhibit flair for Asian cuisine, slicing and rolling sushi and offering create-your-own mongolian stir-fries. At the bar, eight handles remain perpetually reserved for Old Dominion's craft beers, such as the award-winning Baltic porter and the Oak Barrel stout, which is loaded with flavors of vanilla and the color brown.

Like a United Nations of varietals, some of the world’s tastiest wines from countries such as Argentina, Chile, Italy, and France are well-represented within Jackie’s Wine Bar. Connoisseurs savor the unique notes of each pour while investigating the black-framed pictures on Jackie’s coffee-colored walls and the shelves of wine bottles that vie for attention behind the bar by wearing chic designer labels. On Thursday evenings, free salsa lessons invite patrons to set down their glasses and grab their dance partner’s hand; Saturday nights feature live bands that serve dulcet melodies as aromatic bouquets serenade olfactory receptors. Fresh air courses through Jackie’s outdoor patio, where visitors can alternate between sips of wine or beer and bites of sandwiches, desserts, and appetizers.

Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine sets out cultivated craft offerings of beer and cheese for inquisitive palates. The rotating seasonal menu serves duos six craft beers and one cheese sampler plate, with quartets receiving a twofold supply to accommodate their larger group size and higher propensity toward food fights. Each person fills their trio of glasses with pours from the shop's draft selection, which rotates frequently but might include fermented favorites such as Heavy Seas Black Cannon, Chimay Cinq Cents, and Long Trail blackberry wheat. In between sips, diners can nibble on cheese plates stuffed with olives, toast, nuts, and cheeses such as cave-aged gruyere, petit basque, cabrales blue, and Five Counties cheddar. The quirky, bustling store stocks shelves with a plethora of artisanal delicacies, outfitting homes and fallout shelters with timeless appetizers and deliciously aged libations.

Locally focused, organic, and independently owned are three ways to describe Dawson’s Market. Its groceries range from local produce and meats, sourced within 100 miles of the store, to bakery items that incorporate unbleached flour, organic whole-wheat flour, and natural grains. The wine and beer department specializes in local wine and beers procured from local craft breweries, which staff pair with gourmet, unprocessed domestic and imported cheeses. A trained chef whips up meals daily for the prepared foods section, where customers can grab lunch or dinner while they shop.

When The Vineyard's wine curators determine whether a bottle is eligible to join the company's collection, they weigh three factors: quality, origin, and value. During tasting events and weekday meals, they uncork bottles and suss out age, flavor profile, and suitability for food pairings. When considering origin, The Vineyard's wine connoisseurs seek out family wineries, which generally devote more personal attention and goodnight kisses to their grapes. Additionally, family wineries tend to operate with lower costs, thereby fulfilling The Vineyard's third pillar, value.

Although the selection continually evolves, the shop currently stocks domestic and international wines from locales as distant as Australia, which only exists in our imaginations. They complement wines with gift baskets of cheese and chocolate, as well as accessories such as olive wood corkscrews and chrome champagne stoppers.
