South Street Brewery, founded in 1998, is Charlottesville’s oldest brewery and one of the cornerstones of the craft brewing movement in Virginia.

Visitors to the brewery enjoy our expanded beer offerings, including venerated South Street originals, as well as new beers reflecting the diversity and experimentation that is the heart of American craft brewing.

Our 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! 

The brewery features 12 rotating taps at all times including seasonal & experimental brews. Samplers & pints are available.  You can also find these South Street Brewery favorites at a retailer near you:


Satan’s Pony is an old-school Amber Ale of exceptionally balanced malt complexity.  5.3% ABV  12 IBUs


Virginia Lager is a cold-aged beer of the smoothest flavor with gently toasted malt, and a light hand of noble hops.  5% ABV  18 IBUs


365 Shandy is a delicious ale with a burst of Cascade hops to complement the natural lemonade.  The beer so refreshing we keep brewing it 365 days a year.  5% ABV  12 IBUs
