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 joint production facility with Reason Beer in the heart of Charlottesville, VA. We serve select brews,from constantly rotating taps and one-off beers in both of our tap room locations.  You can visit Champion’s Taproom and Reason Beer’s Taproom and get all the brews that both establishments have to offer.

New Releases

Our newest release is out!  CATAN lovers will be thrilled with ROADBUILDER Altbier.  You know you are a CATAN fanatic when someone warns you of the  long road ahead and you say make it the longest.  That + this beer equals 2 victory points in our book.

And we’re off! The first (very happy) fermentation at the relaunched Champion/@reasonbeer production facility (we’re still working on a more glamorous/rad name)
Weekend ready. Come get stocked up and stick around for a stacked free show tonight.


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!
Prepping the cellar for our first tank of Missile next week! It’s been a long time coming but we’re overjoyed to see some action on the production floor.
Our battery’s a little low. We’re closed until Wednesday due to staffing issues. Catch y’all on hump day.
Friday Friday Friday! Our Cville besties @sallyrosemusic and @redandtheromantics are getting your evening going starting at 7. See all you cool kitties out there.
A short ride in the way back machine and any beer-loving Cville OG will remember that on Tuesday nights the move was to take a $20 bill to the only brewery in downtown Charlottesville to get sauced on $2 pints in those cozy a** high-backed wooden booths.

Fast forward to 2022 where downtown is a hall of mirrored windows with a 9 story cement statue of Dingleberry and we have SEVEN breweries now within walking distance. Seven whole breweries, all with their own communities and vibes and deliciously unique taplists. And what better way to celebrate this newfound embarrassment of brewing riches than to hit them ALL in one day with a slow (and probably gassy) march across town. 

It's time for the @charlottesvillealetrail's annual Walk Our City Brewery Crawl! On Saturday, June 25th you can conquer the downtown Cville brewery septafecta as you go the distance (1.5 miles), slurping down one pint at each brewery and rubbing elbows with your sudsy buds. Put on those walking Crocs and tell your Fitbit pals to pay close attention cuz we'll be out here hot striding to that next cold pint. Get your tickets now! Link in bio.
We are students. We are moms. We are dads. We are families. We are citizens living in a country whose representatives won’t implement policy to protect its people. 

Change is long overdue but what we can do now is to take action together to influence our policymakers.

Today we will be donating 20% of sales from our taproom and all retail/restaurant locations to @momsdemand - a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence.
