“Great micro brewery in Scottsville”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Have been wanting to check this place out for many months as I love trying out all the breweries in the area.

JRB is very tiny for tasting. The indoor area could probably fit 15-20 before it begins to feel really congested. During the warmer months, i understand they have an outdoor area behind the brewery where they will have live music and other events on the weekend.

To see what they offered, I opted for a flight, which consisted of their 6 current offerings in 2.5oz tasting. Each one was distinctively unique. I really enjoyed their porter. great chocolate and coffee flavor. The guys that provided me the flight gave a great description of each beer as well as background no how each was developed.

Overall, JRB is a great spot for catch up with the locals, find out about this underappreciated town, and just have a great time with good people. They do serve food on site but you can order from Amicis (italian) and have it delivered.

Will definitely be back this Spring/Summer!

“Micro-brew on the James”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I attended a benefit event for Fairhunt Farm at James River Brewing on Monday evening. Grit City Grass, a great bluegrass band performed in the cozy pub. I had a fabulous banana/bourbon ale. An excellent brew, not too sweet, a hint of banana, a touch of whiskey from the bourbon soaked wood chips used in the making. No kitchen however several local restaurants deliver to the brewery. The staff were lovely, the tunes lively, we all had a fine fine time.
