633 Brewing, owned by business partners Kevin Barrick and Heather Weeks of Waynesboro has been hard at work during the winter months on an expansion project to be able to better serve the community. 

The brewery, located at 118 Walnut St. in Waynesboro, next to Montezuma’s restaurant, has expanded their floorplan to be able accommodate large parties, weddings and special events in their new space. 

“It was an apartment building at one time and even a tanning salon,” Weeks said of the newly renovated space. "We have had it over a year but it sat for a while during COVID before we started doing work. The biggest part took about five weeks and that was painting and redoing the flooring."

The expansion area, referred to as "The Bistro," features multiple tables and chairs as well as a new bar area and a fireplace, all surrounded by large picture windows.

"A lot of people bring board games in and we have some that we give out and they sit, eat and play; it’s just a good time," Weeks said.

For 633, the expansion project has been a goal of the owners since the beginning. 

“A lot of the help we had getting this place ready was by family and friends who have come in when we are closed and even some of our customers and a few musicians even came to help us," Weeks said.

"We have built a nice sense of community here," Barrick added. 

The menu at The Bistro at 633 carries a variety of appetizers including a hummus plate and bruschetta as well as a handful of sandwiches, with classics like turkey and Swiss and the popular $1 grilled cheese sandwich.

"We couldn't get rid of that, it's a staple here and everyone loves it," Barrick said.

The newly renovated space offers the capability to host large parties and events.

In addition to being the backdrop to weddings and social gatherings, the decor at 633 tips its hat to the history of Waynesboro with framed newspaper articles from local publications dating back to 1880 as well as various Waynesboro mementos donated to 633 from the family of the late Bill Elden.

"He kept so many articles and write ups about Waynesboro, and we are so glad that they reached out to us and now we can share them with the community," Barrick said. 

 633 has nightly live music on their stage singing everything from the blues to rock 'n' roll and country to bluegrass as well as open mic nights.

“It’s nice that we are able to do this and hopefully it will bring more people to the town and have more growth," Barrick said. 

Hours of operation will be identical for the two venues — 4 to 9 p.m. Wednesday thru Friday, and Saturday from 2 to 10 p.m.  For more information visit them on Facebook at 633 Brewing or at www.633brewing.com.
