Champion Brewing

Champion Brewing Company is Virginia’s most community-focused brewery, producing a wide variety of ales and lagers in our downtown tap room and our production facility in Charlottesville, VA. We serve select brews, from constantly rotating taps.

New Releases

It’s OFFICIAL! Cavalier Lager is the official lager of the University of Virginia. Fans will be able to purchase Cavalier Lager at all UVA sporting events, grocery, and convenience stores. 2022 is the first year in which the University of Virginia has licensed beer as official products.


Our own Hunter Smith said, “As life-long UVA sports fans, it’s been a dream of the team to have a Cavalier beer offered at UVA games. It’s a hometown lager brewed with our college athletes and their fans top of mind.”


Cavalier Lager (4.0 ABV) is an American pilsner-style beer, brewed with Virginia malts and Saaz hops.


Champion Brewing Company is a Charlottesville-based craft brewery.

New beer alert! Cheugy Pale Ale - Jack’s first recipe for Champion! 

We’re bringing back the cheugy American Pale Ale with Jack’s riff on the classic style. Read his notes below:

Cheugy: “A trend from the 2010s that is considered outdated and no longer cool.” This pale ale takes inspiration from classic American examples adding malt complexity with vienna and munich, and a dose of cascade hops for bittering, but modernizes the style with a hefty dry hop of Motueka and Citra. Expect intense aromas of lime, citrus, and berry, with a refreshing resinous pine finish to remind you of the old days. Embrace the cheugy. 

Come down and enjoy Cheugy pints for $1 off today through Friday.

It’s Nadjeeb’s last night behind the bar. Claim a seat at the copper top to see him off tonight and have a pint of Golden Road, our new Munich style Helles lager. We’re open till 11pm @championtaproom
It’s not every February that we get a perfect patio Thursday, but this one? Sheesh. 

Liter time.
Crash Test Dummy cold IPA is on! False spring or not, it’s a fine Friday afternoon for basking in the sun with a beer.
Dry January is fading in the rear view and it’s 70° today. The pint beckons you. Grab a friend and come on down. We’re open 4-11 tonight @championtaproom
🎶 Come fry with me, let’s fry, let’s fry away 🎶

Thanks to a kitchen glow up this weekend, we’ll be rolling out some new goodies on our @championtaproom menu in the coming weeks. We’re dipping our toes in today with buffalo boneless wings with house-made ranch and shoestring fries but expect a whole slew of new specials soon.
Jack is downtown today mashing in a German-style Helles. Designed for the simple purpose of relaxed enjoyment, the build of this pale golden lager is intentionally simple to minimize distraction and let the Barke pilsner malt base shine through with its comforting bready goodness.
Vintage Canis Lupulus is on tap at @championtaproom and it’s some kind of way to get your Friday started.

Clocking in at a racy 11.0% ABV, this jewel-toned barleywine has had some time to soften its edges, now exhibiting notes of treacle and a kiss of sherry along with all the other decadent hallmarks of the style.
$4 special for Shower Beer and Cavalier Lager, and $5 for Missile tonight. Come on out! 🍻
