Champion Brewing Company

Founded in 2012, Champion Brewing Company is Virginia’s most progressive brewery and produces a wide variety of ales at its two locations: a downtown three-barrel Charlottesville tap room and the larger 30-barrel Belmont production facility, which is also known as the “Missile Factory”.

The production facility recently expanded to 15,000 barrels of capacity and Champion Brewing Company is on pace to brew 10,000 BBLs. The lineup of core beers are their day-in, day-out beers that they produce for ongoing enjoyment in cans. Champion enjoys using their two facilities to pump out large volumes of consistent beers for distribution, and also for limited production of wild and engaging beers that may never repeat.

When visiting the Charlottesville tap room, enjoy constant rotating taps and one-off beers that are served in a lively and fun environment with games, an outdoor patio, and a casual menu from their kitchen.

Champion also has its Brasserie Saison, a restaurant on the downtown mall in Charlottesville.

Champion beers are distributed in Virginia, D.C., West Virginia, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, and Georgia.
