VCT Welcomes Three New Establishments

The economic benefits of the Virginia Capital Trail are just beginning to be realized.  The Billsburg Brewery, Spoke & Art and Indian Fields Tavern recently opened along the trail.  Why not plan a ride soon to support these new businesses!

Billsburg Brewery

Just a stone’s throw from Virginia Capital Trail milepost 0.0 at Jamestown, this new craft brewery is assured of becoming a prime destination of cyclists along the trail. Cyclists can celebrate their ride by relaxing at the tasting room overlooking Powhatan Creek (next to the Jamestown Marina). “Our small batch beers are brewed meticulously with love, honesty, and integrity on our 10 Barrel system and served on-site, fresh for you, every time.” Special events, like German night, pair food and special beers. The “B2” is open Sun-Thurs 12-8 and Fri/Sat 12 – 10. More info at their website


Spoke & Art



Located at milepost 3 on the VCT, Spoke & Art is a "Provision" shop to accommodate the trail cyclists.  In addition to trail-themed items and artwork, the shop sells items such as granola bars, drinks and ice cream.  Plans are to expand in the spring to offer a coffee station, juice bar and lunch counter.  Current hours are 12 to 4 PM.

Indian fields Tavern

Newly re-opened with new owner, a former fishing boat owner in Alaska, and a new Executive Chef from Portland, Oregon, Indian Fields Tavern near Charles City Courthouse, is perfectly positioned for a well-deserved break from cycling. Plans are even underway for a brewery to open in 2018! Initial reviews are positive featuring a menu of fresh wild-caught seafood and fresh regional ingredients. Or maybe the meatball sandwich or cheeseburger might be what you need to refuel. The farm to table offerings fit perfectly with the updated turn of the century farmhouse in the middle of the fields (9220 John Tyler Highway). Plus, the Virginia Capital Trail is directly across the road at milepost 22!  More info at Indian Fields Tavern.
