Shipping containers used for a brewery/bar

In recent years, shipping containers have increasingly been used as the foundations for culinary institutions-- from restaurants to bars to breweries. With its bustling economy and high volume of tourists, it comes as no surprise that Virginia Beach is no stranger to creative dining experiences. In 2021, plans were put forward to build a craft brewery named The Shipyard in Virginia Beach using 40’ shipping containers. This brewery is supposed to be a great place for locals to get together-- a way for the builders to give back to the community.

Using a storage container like the ones we sell at Rent-A-Container might just be the perfect low cost, sustainable way for you to start out your own business-- whether that be a brewery like The Shipyard or a full restaurant. Since shipping containers are reusable, cut down on the cost of constructing a new building, and relatively mobile compared to traditional buildings, they are a great choice for business owners trying to test a new business idea without sacrificing too much of their budget all at once.

If you want to build a brewery, bar, or restaurant of your own in Virginia Beach but don’t know where to start, consider looking into the pros and cons of using a shipping container as your base of operations!
