Smartmouth Brewing Company

Smartmouth Brewing Co. is a craft brewery whose beers are available on tap from Virginia Beach to Richmond.  Located on the banks of the Elizabeth River in Norfolk, Virginia, our 20-barrel brewhouse typically churns out around 100 barrels a month. It also includes an 1100-square-foot tasting room open to the public where you can have a sip or several, purchase a keg, fill your growlers and score some Smartmouth swag.

Since opening in October 2012, our focus has been to make the highest quality beers giving beer lovers new tasting experiences to savor.  Our beers are crisp, clean and smooth and have won awards in statewide and nationwide competitions, including a Bronze Medal in the 2013 Great American Beer Festival for our Notch 9 Imperial IPA.  Three flagship styles (Alter Ego Saison, Murphy’s Law Amber Ale and Rule G IPA) are available year round as well as a variety of rotating seasonal and specialty beers.
