Alewerks Brewing Tap Takeover

On Thursday February 1st from 4-8 pm Alewerks will be taking over the taps in The Granary

A little bit about Alewerks Brewing Company ~

Alewerks Brewing Company is committed to balance - the balance of ingredients that makes it easy to appreciate a beer, the balance of traditionalism with innovation, and the balance of passion and focus. Alewerks is committed to being proud of every ounce we brew.

In 2006 Charles "Chuck" Haines commenced a new stage in his life, gathering a group of investors to open Williamsburg Alewerks LLC. Inspired by time spent in Europe, Chuck aimed to share his passion for authentic, craft brewed ales with his friends in Virginia. Though not that far in the past, the scene was not nearly as friendly to craft breweries as it is now. Alewerks survived a challenging marketplace thanks to Chuck's tenacity and eye for talent. Too often queried, "What is Williamsburg Alewerks?" the more descriptive moniker "Alewerks Brewing Company" was adopted.

In 2008 Chuck wisely tapped accomplished musician Geoff Logan as Brewmaster. Geoff's output quickly and increasingly garnered recognition, awards, and respect. When Chuck officially retired as Managing Member at the end of 2015 the reins were handed to Geoff, leading to Alewerks being the rare brewer-driven brewery. With Geoff at the helm, Alewerks is committed to the beer first; we don't look to brew what sells, we sell what we brew.

Alewerks recently doubled capacity to keep up with increasing demand. From the first ale brewed at Alewerks to the recently introduced first lager, every member of the Alewerks team joined and remains due to pride in our fine beers and commitment to maintain quality and consistency during growth.  Alewerks is also a certified Virginia Green business.

Musical Guest will be Brent Hull and John Hazelwood from the band "Maybe Tomorrow"

A little bit about South Street Brewery ~   South Street Brewery was purchased in 2014 by Blue Mountain Brewery, whose owners have a deep connection with this storied brewing establishment. Two of Blue Mountain’s founders—Mandi and Taylor Smack—both worked for South Street over a decade ago, Taylor having been the brewer from late 2001 until early 2007. Our company is committed to maintaining and revitalizing this important Charlottesville landmark and gathering place. We hope you enjoy our expanded beer offerings, including venerated South Street originals that helped shape the Central Virginia beer scene, as well as new beers reflecting the diversity and experimentation that is the heart of American craft brewing. Our new food offerings lean heavily toward local artisans—from beef to bread, from tofu to produce and everything in between—reflecting our belief that Charlottesville, Virginia is the best place on Earth to live, drink and eat!
