Apocalypse Ale Works

We are a community based brewery started by Doug John and his wife, Lee John. Our objective is to provide the best beer made with the best ingredients possible.

The recipes that are brewed are home-brew recipes that Doug John has been working on for 25 years. We use traditional brewing methods and ingredients which has led to multiple awards for many of our beers.

The Lustful Maiden Belgian Dubbel was awarded a gold medal in the US Open held in Atlanta. It also won a silver medal at the Virginia Cup, was awarded best belgian of Microfestivus, and was recently named best Belgian in the country. Our 6th Seal Chocolate Stout won a gold medal at the Virginia Cup and our Heavy Red Horseman Wee Heavy won a silver medal at the World Beer Cup.

We offer a selection of 10 different beers that range from the very light (Golden Censer orange honey wheat) to the very dark (6th Seal Chocolate Stout). The brewery is pet friendly and during the summer we have a variety of food trucks that come out Wednesday through Saturday.
