Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine is namesake for local, limited-release beer from Green Flash Brewing Co.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine welcomes Green Flash Brewing Co. to the Hampton Roads community and is proud to be the namesake and exclusive retailer for the specialty craft brewery's first local beer release – Green Flash Ynot Session IPA.  Green Flash has confirmed plans for a fall 2014 groundbreaking for their 2nd brewing facility in Virginia Beach located on General Booth Boulevard.  The new brewery is slated to open in 2016 as the San Diego-born organization expands to more efficiently ship beer east of the Mississippi. Upon opening, the 58,000-square-ft. facility will be the largest brewery in Virginia, and will introduce over 40 new jobs (Virginia Beach Economic Development) to the region.

Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine of Hampton Roads, Va. is namesake for local, limited-release beer from Green Flash Brewing Co. Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine will be the 1st retailer to carry a limited Green Flash release in the Hampton Roads and Virginia markets.

Ynot Session IPA will debut as the first Green Flash locals-only beer release, available in Hampton Roads at Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine and in San Diego in the Green Flash Tasting Room on draft only. In celebration of Virginia Craft Beer Month, Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine will tap Ynot Session IPA throughout August at each of their 5 locations in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Norfolk.

A Session IPA is known for its hop-dominant flavor profile at a lower, or "sessionable," level of alcohol. Green Flash is well-known for crafting extreme hoppy IPA styles including West Coast IPA®, a double IPA which has been credited with putting this quintessential San Diego beer style on the map. The Green Flash version of a session IPA will deliver the same intensely hoppy flavors for which Green Flash ales are most well-known.

"We're truly honored to team up with Green Flash," said Tony DiSilvestro, co-owner of Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine. "Their investment in this community will create new and exciting opportunities for our area, and we're happy to help welcome them to the neighborhood by serving this special new release, named in our honor."

"As we prepare to break ground in Virginia Beach, we are increasingly excited to work with other craft beer lovers in the area," says Mike Hinkley, Co-Founder and CEO of Green Flash Brewing Co. "By partnering with Ynot Pizza & Italian Cuisine, we are able to provide a uniquely flavorful Session IPA as a special treat for locals-only. We named the beer to celebrate the 1st retailer to carry a limited Green Flash release in the market."
