Virginia Beach Craft Beer 101: If The Beer Is Popular make sure you have enough of it on hand

This might seem silly to start an article on Virginia Beach Beer this way but it is true. Before 2013 another Craft Brew maker named Alpine had f0878d58f82c21f8904a8cfe90482229an interesting situation:

  1.  They made incredible beer
  2.  But there wasn’t enough to satisfy the demand

 So what do you do?

Find another great craft beer producer who can help you make more.  And that is exactly what Alpine did. They partnered with Green Flash to help get these biracles (beer miracles) to the public in appropriate supply. So what could be so good that one brewery would buy another to get.

 Well you will get to the find out at the Tap Takeover on August 25th, 2017 at the Dough Boys Green Flash Tap Takoever because..

 The Alpine HFS beer will be on tap.

I will break down why this little Virginia Beach creation is so special:

Oceanfront Restaurant Allowing Dogs

February 13th, 2017

dogs love to playFor dog lovers coming to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Oceanfront being able to bring your dog is very important..

So you are traveling to the Oceanfront with your dog. One of the biggest questions that come up for dog owners on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk and beach area are what restaurants allow dogs. Part of the relaxation and fun of a vacation is going out to eat but the point of bringing your dog was not to leave them behind. Thus finding a place where you can bring them when you eat is critical.

Dough Boys is the perfect place to bring the family, and the family pet. Both locations offer an outdoor deck area where your canine can sit with you while you dine, giving you the best of both worlds. And of course you are only a block from the Oceanfront.

Here is a map of our location


Virginia Beach Oceanfront Tips For Dogs AT The Restaurantvirginia beach dogs near boardwalk

Here are some tips to help you when you are actually dining with your dog. It is easy to forget that they have a whole set of needs, independent of our own. I have pulled together some simple things to make sure the ENTIRE family has a pleasurable experience having pizza, pasta, or burgers at Dough Boys in Virginia Beach.

Don’t bring the dog hungry

A hungry dog is going to beg and beg and beg and drive you crazy. It is like going to the grocery store when you are hungry, which means you cannot get your mind off food.

A tired dog is a calm dog

After a day of play most dogs will love the opportunity to rest.

Make sure it is officially “dog” friendly

Not every restaurant is like Dough Boy’s Pizza on The Virginia Beach Oceanfront, make sure they officially will allow canines.

Get Real

If your dog is rambunctious or untrained, don’t do this. This is to much stimulation for them.

And what about one of those warm Virginia Beach Oceanfront Days?

It is very likely that you are going to bring that dog out when it is warm. So always make sure to bring water and provide shade for them. On an extremely hot day, I wouldn’t bring them out at all.

Our Virginia Beach Pizza Restaurant And Success Dealing With Food Allergies

January 4th, 2017


Here is the full review for our Pizza Restaurant on 17th street and the Virginia Beach Oceanfront concerning food allergies. Here is the full review:

“Our waitress Melissa was fantastic! Eased my world for her knowledge of the menu, ingredients, and ability to avoid utilizing my epi pen. We went back Saturday night, asked for her to be our waitress… She brought our drink order from the previous night correctly by memory, before she took our drink order.

The 4 of us enjoyed wonderful service again! Sunday night, the boys were requesting to go again. It was a spectacular place that was family friendly and I felt really heard about the allergy concerns and Melissa made us feel like a local family customer.

We will definitely go back the next time we are at VA Beach!”

Tips For Food Allergies in Virginia Beach

This happy customer touched on the very important issue of food allergies which is a factor when a family visits a restaurant on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront or at home. The subject of food allergies however, is way too comprehensive to tackle in this one article. Here are some important facts to consider as you delve deeper into the subject.

I saw a pretty good article on Web MD that laid the groundwork of this subject. A number of really important facets of food allergies were mentioned. Many focus around misconceptions of what food allergies are and what causes them.

Many times food intolerance is mistaken for a food allergy and sometimes food poisoning. An allergy occurs because the immune system has been triggered to react to a substance entering the body which it views as detrimental. Symptoms are a great barometer of whether someone has an actual allergy. Some symptoms of an allergic reaction are:

    • Itching in the mouth
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Difficulty swallowing
    • Abdomen pain
    • Diarrhea
    • Vomiting
    • Hives
    • Wheezing
    • Fluctuations in blood pressure


Based upon these symptoms alone food allergies are to be taken very seriously. In the review above Melissa was trained on our products and their ingredients encompassing pizza, pasta, burgers, drinks and anything else we offer to the public. But every restaurant may not have the same level of commitment to addressing food allergies as Dough Boys.

Before we move forward to tips to help you while dining out, we would like to give a special thanks to Melissa for always putting the customer first, always being polite, and always doing what they can to make sure they have the healthiest dining experience possible.

Well done Melissa!

Allergy Tips When Visiting Virginia Beach Restaurants

(all, pasta, burgers, etc)

I saw an incredible list of tips from the Food Allergy and Education website. It went over some basic tips to help guide you as you maneuver the restaurant landscape of the Oceanfront, Virginia Beach, Hampton Roads and beyond.

Prepare for Your Dining Out Experience

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure..

Call ahead

Ask to speak to the management. If you can’t get a straight answer or a comprehensive answer, do you really want to risk it?

Check the menu online. Look for documentation that the restaurant is aware of food allergies and has safe items you can order.

Know Thy Allergies

If you know you have them, mention this upfront when you call the manager and to the waiter when at the actual restaurant. Also have a written list of your allergies to hand to them.

Keep the Epi-Pen Ready

Keep that Epinephrine pen handy and ready to use. You never know what you will be facing.

Check the list

If you are going out of town check out this database to see what restaurants are allergy aware.

This includes personal forms filled out by actual customers, Yelp reviews, Trip Advisor reviews, Facebook comments, and of course Google reviews.

So I pulled together One Of My Favorites From Facebook

Here’s a review from Jamie Woodson that I recently saw on Facebook. Everything she says is true and the man she refers to is the owner. A lot of people who work here come back even after they have left. A lot of people who eat here come back year after year. Here is the actual review:

“Jamie Storm Woodson-This has seriously been what every pizza has ever looked like, even when I worked there about 20 years ago. I’ve never had a bad slice and the owner George has always been a nice guy.”

Thanks Jamie. Since everything is fresh, it comes out looking and tasting that way.

Fresh Virginia Beach Pizza

In fact this leads us into some other aspects of what Jamie’s talking about. It’s not just fresh dough prepared each order. It’s also the fresh ingredients. We’re bringing the California pizza concept to the Virginia Beach oceanfront. And this requires fresh vegetables that are cut right there in the kitchen and you can see on the pizza they are garden fresh.

Whether you’re going for spinach, whole tomatoes, or anything else it’s gonna look fresh and taste fresh.

Virginia_Beach_PizzaLots of pizza toppings

In fact Dough Boys offers lots of different pizza toppings popular with both Virginia Beach local, and Virginia Beach oceanfront visitors. And they like it for the For the simple reason that you never know what people are going to want and it’s good to give them lots of selections from traditional pizza to really unusual styles of pizza you just can’t get anywhere else.

Here are some of our specialty pizzas:

  • Spinach pizza
