Redbeard Brewing Company

Redbeard Brewing Company is Staunton Virginia’s first downtown brewery, just a short walk away from the Blackfriar’s Playhouse in the historic Wharf District.

We have a ~1.5 barrel brewhouse and a total fermentation capability of roughly 15 barrels. Each batch is hand crafted by one person from beginning to end, using ancient techniques with (moderately) modern equipment.

All of our beers are ales and are brewed with high-quality Belgian-grown base malts and specialty malts, American hops, and Staunton municipal tap water. After a two-week fermentation, the beers are packaged still (non-carbonated) in kegs, then allowed to naturally carbonate in those kegs in one of our warm cellars. After carbonating, the kegs are placed in our cold cellar to “cold condition”. At that point, they are ready to serve in our Taproom.

Typically American, English, and Belgian styles are available on 8 taps.
