Est. 2016

The Virginia Beer Company is a brewery + taproom + beer garden now open at 401 Second Street in Williamsburg, VA, conveniently located just over a mile from the heart of Colonial Williamsburg. Virginia Beer Co. will focus on a high quality core lineup, a boundary-pushing rotation of limited edition beers, environmental sustainability, and active philanthropy in the community. We host a variety of food trucks and live events weekly. Our family friendly taproom and pet friendly beer garden are open daily for beers & cheers!



Food Menu

We currently feature a rotation of food trucks on a weekly basis. The calendar of food trucks is fluid so we strive to promote daily food trucks at least a week in advance on our website.

We allow guests to bring in manageable sized meals. Please be conscious of your fellow patrons and clean up after your meal! 

We also allow delivery to the brewery and feature an exclusive delivery menu with nearby Antonio's Ristorante Italiano, which waives delivery fees for orders to the brewery. 

We offer VA peanuts, VA chips, and sodas for sale on site. NO outside alcoholic beverages are permitted on the premises at any time.

OUR People


OUR Beers

Year Round

Saving Daylight4.9% ABV -  25 IBU

Crisp, Refreshing, Citrusy. A quaffable American Wheat Ale brewed with orange and grapefruit peels. The hop back addition of whole-cone Centennial hops balances the citrus and provides a subtle yet flavorful bitterness. This complex take on a wheat ale is brewed for the days you just don’t want to end!

Free Verse - 6.8% ABV - 77 IBU

Tropical, Unfiltered, Juicy. Conform to the bitter expectations of your standard India Pale Ale? Not us. We pair the juicy, tropical flavors of Azacca hops with whole-cone spicy, piney Chinook to create a rounded bitterness. A hoppy, aroma-forward delight that will appeal to both IPA lovers and those who don’t think they like IPAs…yet.

Elbow Patches6.2% ABV - 26 IBU

Roasty, Creamy, Chocolatey. An Oatmeal Stout to be enjoyed with breakfast, lunch, dinner, or anytime in between. The use of flaked oats creates a smooth, velvety base that sets the stage for pronounced aromas reminiscent of chocolate and coffee. The surprising lack of astringent bitterness rounds out this dark beer's wide appeal.

Wrenish Rye - 6.0% ABV - 39 IBU

Smooth, Spicy, Balanced.This dry-hopped Amber Ale starts with traditional German rye malt and pairs Simcoe hops with the peachy notes of Jarrylo. The combination of spiciness from the rye and a refreshingly bold hop aroma presents the perfect opportunity to challenge your perception of the style.
