This was the only stop I had time for on my drive from Charlottesville to ORF, but it was enjoyable. Nice place away from the tourist area, parking out front and an overflow lot for busy times (today was not one of those times). Bar and a bunch of tables. Available beers on a chalk board. All available as 6 oz tasters or in flights of 4. Can also get a pour of everything they have (10ish) plus pretzels for $30. The flight of four was like $12, I guess we are not in the mountains any more Toto. I have always liked AleWerks beer, and today was no exception, although the dark saison was a bit weird.
Visited herein mid February ’16 while in the area for business. Medium sized tap room, nothing fancy. Has a bar with about a dozen stools and tables filling the rest of the room. Had 10 of their own on tap when I was there. All were available in 6 oz, 12 oz (so called pints) and bombers, Reasonably priced and all were pretty solid, one or two appeared to be phoned in (their amber for instance). Barkeep was friendly and very knowledgeable about their beers. Wednesday night was trivia night and it really pulls in the locals. Not a bad place to grab a few beers and suck in the local vibe,
A small place with plenty of parking. 8 beers on tap. The bartenders were friendly and knowledgeable. Had some cool merchandise too. There’s also a nice patio spot to the side. I’ll definitely head back here next time I’m in the area.
on a saturday so the place filled up pretty quickly. there was a friendly crowd with some kids. bar staff were pretty friendly real and open. mix of friendly enough regulars. the place is ok enough not large not fancy with some stuff you can buy. the beer and the folks make this place.
Visited 2/2/13. Got there and it was pretty empty, just one other customer. I was later told they were understaffed that day so I’m not dinging them for service, but I waited forever before being acknowledged and able to order a pint. But the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Then the tiny place filled up. One tour ended and came in for a tasting while another large tour group arrived and waited for its tour to start. They said they are expanding in a couple of months which will be good. Though I’d say they should get rid of some of the merch. I’ve never seen a brewery store with so much non-beer product to sell. Every type of growler, every style of shirt with different designs, every type of glass, different types of bottle openers, etc.
I had a leaking tire that wasn’t holding air and we googled the nearest Porsche dealer - it was right next door to this brewery. I guess I believe in fate now. Small warehouse type brewery with a store and tasting room next door. We did the tasting and the tour, which was very informative, lots of beer history. Staff was very friendly. Beers were tasty. Worth a stop for sure.
Easy to miss if you aren’t looking! One guy working wasn’t very friendly but the other one was. I came in for a special seasonal but they were sold out. One of the guys offered to call around to see if any stores still had any that I could go pick up. They fill growlers or you can pay for tasters.
