James River Brewery

James River Brewery is located in a historic 19th century brick warehouse on Scottsville’s main street. Scottsville is located at the great Horseshoe Bend in the James River, just 20 miles south of Charlottesville. The histories of Scottsville and the James River have been intertwined from the 18th century with packet boats and batteaux transporting goods and people up and down the James the present day canoeing, tubing, and fishing activities.
