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.

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! 🍻
Happy New Year!
Thanks to all who joined us tonight, especially @chasowens who never fails to make things merry and bright. Let’s do it again next year! 🎄
TEN years, Charlottesville! We opened our doors ten years ago and have adored every minute of being a part of this community. The years have whizzed by but we are always touched when the time comes each year to reflect on another year full of fast friends and heartening memories had here at our downtown taproom.

We hope you'll join us for another classic Champion anniversary and holiday party on December 16th when we'll be releasing Enter Strider, our tenth anniversary mixed-fermentation dark sour, fermented in the same oak barrels since our inception. The Charles Owens Quartet will be here setting the mood with festive holiday jazz and we'll have some great food specials from our kitchen.

Cheers to ten great years!
Stick to the rivers and the True Love that you’re used to.
Join us this Saturday at @championtaproom from 3:30-9 for a special fundraising event hosted by former UVA basketball player, Tunji Soroye and his organization @justhelpafrica.

Saturday's event will feature special West African dishes made by Tunji himself, afrobeats by @djuptownskye, as well as opportunities to discuss the efforts to aid Tunji's hometown of Ibadan, Nigeria with Tunji and the Just Help team.

Proceeds and donations from the event will go to the Just Help organization and we'll be contributing $1 from every beverage sold. Just Help received a generous donation match offer recently so all the proceeds from Saturday will be matched! Come hang on Saturday for this great cause!
Our hearts are heavy for the families and communities affected by the tragedy that has befallen our town. The unimaginable losses for these families and trauma experienced by our community have us struggling for words in these moments that have become too frequent. 

We will open our doors tonight from 4-9 PM @championtaproom. Strength and support from community can be found in these moments in familiar places with familiar faces and we’d like to keep that door open on a day as troubling as today. Maybe you’ll find some comfort in a friend, or a vulnerable moment that focuses your discomfort towards actionable support and change. 

We’ll be here if you need us.
Round and round we go. Custom conveyance ✅. Almost ready to fire up our reconfigured packaging line!
Hoops season is the best season. Look for cans of Cavalier Lager to enjoy at all JPJ events!

Pumperstiltskin is back! @jokusa’s pumpernickel-inspired porter recipe for bread-in-a-glass comfort pays homage to the cozy embrace that fresh pumpernickel bread gives and is back on tap just in time to restore that lost serotonin that went poof with the shortening autumn days. Rich with all the hallmarks of the traditional German bread, this pint is laden with flavors of molasses, earthy rye, caraway, and cocoa.

It’s bready-bye time. Come drink some bread.
