Overview

Strangeways Brewing is a one-of-a-kind, 8,400 square-foot production brewery that is open to the public daily. It houses multiple tasting room spaces, and always has 25+ unique beers on tap.  RateBeer named Strangeways “Best Brewery Tap Room in Virginia” in 2014/2015. One of the tasting room spaces houses an exquisitely peculiar bar, laden with hundreds of curios, oddities, and breweriana pieces.  A second tasting room space allows you to view the brewing equipment and processes alongside a backdrop of 200+ spirit and wine barrels, in which a variety of unique beers are carefully aged for your imbibing pleasure. There also is an outdoor Biergarten, where you can enjoy the weather, grab a bite to eat from the ever-rotating food trucks on site, relax with the pooches, or play some cornhole. The exquisitely peculiar main bar, along with funky decor showcased by local artisans throughout the brewery, are not to be missed while visiting RVA.   Savor locally hand crafted beers on premise by the glass or tasting goblet.  Take beer to-go by the bottle, growler, Grunt, Can-Able Crowler, or Blue Ball mason jar, and procure some unique brewery merchandise during your visit. Outfitted with a 20 barrel brewhouse, this is where we unhinge the status quo, break through the boring, and invite the unknown. Make Strangeways Brewing one of your adventure destinations for regular tastings, tours, event/private party bookings, and whatever strange events we come up with.     In search of craft beer out of the ordinary? So are we. That's why we spend our days toiling away, creating exquisitely peculiar concoctions to satisfy the most curious of cravings, persnickety of palates and inquisitive of individuals. That said, we strongly encourage you to do two things: Think Strange. Drink Strange. You've already taken the first step. • Always 25+ Unique Beers on Tap • Free Organized Brewery Tours on Saturdays (noon-2pm) & Self-Guided Tours (other tasting room hours) • Event & Private Party Bookings • Multiple Indoor Tasting Rooms • Outdoor Biergarten • Draft Beer and Bottles Available To Go • Snack Foods and Soft Beverages Available • Rotating Food Trucks • Family Friendly • Dog Friendly • Live Music Weekly • Late Night Brews & Burlesque Monthly • Comedy Shows • Arcade • Sports TV • Free Public WiFi • Merchandise and Gift Cards Available • Mondays: Cards Against Humanity Sin Night • Tuesdays: Trivia Night • Wednesdays: Tasting Goblet Specials • Thursdays: Steal the Vessel • Sundays: Beer Brunch + Live Music

This was our fourth stop on the beer trail. Lots of interesting stuff to see and beer was okay. Not our favorites but you need to see it to believe it.
