Decent People (est. 2016) is a veteran owned tap room in the Harbour View area of Suffolk, VA. Like so many businesses, it started as a casual conversation over a beer. From then, it has turned into becoming an entity, finding business partners and mentors, putting our savings into, taking on debt, and putting in a lot of man hours, but it has truly been a labor of love.
Whether on the job, having fun, or just hanging out with a beer – we realized being a decent person doesn’t take a lot of work but goes a long way. We want that to extend to our customers and employees as well, which is why we like to remind ourselves and others to “Be Decent.”
We plan to offer a variety of local craft brews, ciders, and wines using an innovative self-serve system where patrons can pay by the ounce. This offers variety, choice, and the freedom to explore without having to commit to a particular beer or have to wait to be served one. At Harbour View, we feel we have the perfect opportunity to provide more craft brew options to an underserved and growing community. No more driving 30 minutes to that brewery to get that special pour – we’ll bring them to you! 44 taps worth to be exact.
So come, have a drink, enjoy our fresh farm-to-table menu and relax among those who care. We hope to bring a craft brew concept that is fun and approachable to the area, just like us. Cheers!
