The biggest of all Charlottesville area breweries, Devils Backbone was snatched up by Anheuser Busch a few years back. Perennial favorites include Vienna Lager and Eight Point IPA. You’ll also find a slew of seasonal brews. The massive outdoor seating area features fire pits, corn hole and other yard games.
Founded at the turn of the twenty-first century, Starr Hill is the second oldest brewery in Virginia. It didn’t take long for brews with the red star logo to catch on, and you can find them on store shelves around Virginia and far beyond. Starr Hill now has two locations — one in Crozet and one in Downtown Charlottesville.

Champion Brewing Company
How can you lose at a brewery called Champion? Lagers and IPAs with zippy names — Hatchback Lyfe Hazy IPA and True Love Lager— set the tone for a chilled out afternoon or evening hanging out with friends.
A light-filled taproom with an industrial aesthetic near the heart of downtown Charlottesville makes Random Row a popular spot for date nights or palling around with friends. Neapolitan-style pizza is available for order seven days a week.
A nano-brewery featuring small, frequent batches, Rockfish will serve up lagers, pale ales and IPAs or send them home with you in a growler. Try four- to eight-beer flights and pair it with light fare from partner restaurants.

South Street Brewery
Another Charlottesville classic, South Street Brewery was early to the craft brewing game, opening in 1998. A fireplace provides warmth and ambience in the winter months, and televisions along the bar bring sport fans in for cold brews and big games.

Named for the colonial-era thoroughfare made famous by Jack Jouett’s midnight ride to Charlottesville, Three Notch’d has a mission to “respect the inalienable rights of man.” That may be a tall order for a brewery, but a few cold ones in the massive beer hall near the Ix Art Park will certainly have you feeling right!
