Best Craft Brew in Williamsburg

Make sure you include a visit to Alewerks when in or near Williamsburg. I like the Chesapeake Pale Ale the best but many other choices are on tap. The tasting room offers plenty of seating and Hot Pretzels to go along with a beer.

Favorite beer was Washington porter. A lot of beers had citrus and cascade hops. Inside was very spacious and comfortable.

Tried a pale ale/IPA/wheat ale sampler - didn't try the stouts or porters but liked what we did try. Seems like we would have had a better time if anyone had bothered to talk to us. Very much a "Cheers" type bar - you had to be a local. No one tending any tables as dirty glasses littered them all.... More

A fantastic line of refreshing beers that make it very well worth the stop. Their fresh pretzel was a great addition to their great beers.

Great guide showed us around the very small brewery and we got to taste some truly delicious beer. We started with a small beer which we purchased and then on to the tour of the brewing area. We learned a lot about local breweries and a short history of beer in the US. we finished up with a tasting of... More

Would highly recommend a visit. Beers are true craft beers with tasting room bar and brewery store. Wide range of alcoholic content beers...3.7abv to 10+abv. Beer that is different in a very positive sense is the Royale Café Nitro Beer. Bourbon barrel based with coffee and chocolate overtones. Very smooth! Fights of beer available 4 ounces from $2 to $3.50.... More

This small brewery is fairly new and has a pretty extensive list of brews! Quite the variety for such a small place. The bar is combo shop / traditional bar. Nice place to sit and just relax. They have the option to try samples at a reasonable price, which is what I did. Just about all the ones I had... More

The tour was somewhat interesting. I only liked two out of the six beer tastings. The experience was just ok. If you go, be sure to find a coupon to get a $1.50 discount.
