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.

Back on the grind. Today we’re dry-hopping a tank of Hatchback Lyfe with loads of Citra, Azacca, and Idaho Gem. We’re excited to bring back one of our favorite hazy IPAs from last year. This batch will be draft only so be on the lookout for it to hit taps in the next few weeks.
We’re honored to announce our official partnership with the University of Virginia with the release of Cavalier Lager, a refreshing light lager made by Champion for champions. Come August, these handsome cans all dressed up in home whites will be available at stores across Charlottesville and Virginia. Fans of UVA athletics can also look forward to finding Cavalier Lager at concessions during home sporting events.

Beat the heat with a crisp and refreshing lager. Our lineup at @championtaproom is stacked with great options right now.
Delayed opening at @championtaproom today 🌧️. We sprung a wee leak during that torrent last night and will need a little extra time to dry out. With a little luck (and the modern marvel of industrial dehumidifiers) we'll be open by this evening. Stay tuned for deets.
Filling a tank with True Love, our Mexican-style lager is about the best way we can think of to celebrate Friday. Spencer just joined the team this week, fresh off his move from Baton Rouge, LA and he’s been eagerly getting his hands dirty since the moment he set foot in the brewery!
Our flagship beers are the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon filled with crafts, prints, vintage items, and a one of a kind vintage market.

The next edition of our monthly event of Prints, Platters, and Pints also includes WTJU DJ's (@wtjuradio), and live music.  Come enjoy art, music, and some delicious craft beers with us tomorrow, Sunday June 26, 2022 starting at 1pm.

WTJU DJ Schedule:
1pm DJ Al
2pm Tyler A
3pm Thomas Dean
4pm Uncle Dave Lewis
5pm Erin O

Live Music starts at 6pm with Live music from Orion Faruque (@orionsblt ). With a penchant for finding joy in the moment, Orion's songwriting contrasts soaring highs and everyday peace with poignant pain atop a bed of sweet chords and interlocking rhythm. Live, the project ranges from tight arrangements to improvised jams. 

See you tomorrow!

It’s an especially happy Friday for this guy as he starts full-time on Monday as one of our main taproom brewers! Jack has been with us since graduating UVa after the fall semester last year, starting with lots of keg washing and quickly leveraging his passion and voracious appetite for learning the trade into a full-time brewing position in less than a year. Wattaguy.

We dare you to have a better weekend than Jack. Friday night at @championtaproom with @emilyyy_rrrose and @theflopsband is a good starting point. Free music starting at 7. Come hang!
