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.
