Brewing community & craft beverages

COVA Brewing Company is a family-owned and operated business in Ocean View, Virginia.

Coffee + Beer

Our doors opened in July of 2020, and since then, “Something’s Always Brewing”. From our craft coffee house or craft brewery, there’s something for everyone in our modern one-of-a-kind space.

Crafted by two families, The Bateman's and The Smith's, each bringing their own flair to the business.

A Shared Vision

Locals, Scott & Susan Bateman, grew up in Ocean View. As active members in philanthropic organizations throughout East Beach, it was only natural for them to create COVA, a community space for guests to gather over craft ‘brews’.

Phil & Karla Smith found their home in Ocean View after moving from the midwest. As healthcare professionals, taking care of guests is ingrained in their business practices. With a familial background in craft beer and spirits coupled with a passion for delicious coffee, Phil & Karla have helped make COVA’s beverage offerings one-of-a-kind.

COVA Crew

Like any good family business, it’s about the team members who make up the fabulous #COVACrew. Our trained staff are both barista and bartender, ensuring that your COVA experience is one to remember. With new coffees and brews hitting taps each week, you can look forward to savoring your craft beverage and experiencing firsthand that “Something’s Always Brewing” at COVA Brewing Company.
