     Poquoson may soon have a brewpub

Poquoson could have a new brewpub sitting on City Hall Avenue by next summer, if everything goes according to plan.

The roughly 6,000-square-foot facility would seat roughly 200 people if built, said City Planner Kevin Wyne, who presented plans for the brewpub to the Poquoson Planning Commission Monday night. The facility would occupy a parcel of land directly east of the City Hall roundabout.

A brewpub is different from a full-scale brewery in terms of scale, and is more like a restaurant, said Sam Straight, the developer and owner of the future brewery. He predicts his brewery would only produce maybe one-sixth or one-fifth of what St. George's Brewing, Poquoson's other local brewer, produces.

Straight has never owned a brewery before, but he's confident in his ability to make good beer. Straight is a microbiologist, and, before his foray into home brewing, he taught for 20 years at the University of Michigan.

Straight expects his brewery would produce at most 1,500 barrles per year, compared with the roughly 15,000 to 30,000 barrels per year a brewery like St. George's could produce.

The brewery won't bottle or can its beer, Straight said. It's much cheaper to just use kegs if a brewery is producing for individual sale. He said he wants to use the money saved by not bottling to eventually equip and staff a kitchen on the premises. A kitchen is already included in the plans on file.

     Former Poquoson football star Henen Benthall Jr. leaves legacy of service on Eastern Shore

e thing people remember most about Henen Benthall Jr., other than his devout Christianity, is that during his prime as an athlete in the late-1940s and early '50s he was fast.

"He was a 10-flat 100 (-yard dash) guy and you didn't see many of those back then," said John Graham, a high school football teammate of Benthall's.

Considering that Benthall played at Poquoson High, known more for toughness than speed, the folks closest to him haven't seen many since unless they rode onto the Bull Island in a visiting team's bus. Benthall was the exception, especially in 1949, when he ran for 12 touchdowns in addition to throwing passes for two more and six extra points to lead the Islanders to the only unbeaten season (6-0-2) in school history.

"If he got around end, he was so fast it was a touchdown," Graham said Monday, reminiscing about the '49 season.

Similarly, Alex Turlington, a teammate on that '49 team, said at their 60th reunion in 2009, "If Henen got one step on you, it was goodbye."

Family and friends of Benthall will say goodbye to him 10 a.m. Tuesday in a memorial service at St. James Episcopal Church in Accomac. Benthall, 84, died Thursday after years of battling a "treatable but not curable" form of cancer through at least 20 radiation and eight chemotherapy treatments.

     Cleveland Indians Recall Kyle Crockett; Option Cody Anderson

The Cleveland Indians have recalled left-handed pitcher Kyle Crockett from Triple-A Columbus and optioned out right-hander Cody Anderson to make room.

Crockett’s addition gives the Indians a lefty in the bullpen that they’ve lacked since T.J. House was optioned to Triple-A over the All-Star break. Crockett has spent parts of the last three seasons with the big league club with varying degrees of success. He’s appeared in 11 games with the Indians this year though only 3 2/3 innings as he was used almost exclusively as a left-handed matchup guy. Unfortunately for Crockett lefties hit .385 off him albeit in just 15 plate appearances.

With the Columbus Clippers this year Crockett has appeared in 26 games, throwing 27 1/3 innings. he’s struck out 22 and held opponents to a .241 batting average against.
