Consistently excellent. A local feel with a seriously "anywhere, anytime" kind of appeal. This crew has put out some killer "all day at a BBQ" brews and then plenty of "this will go with my dinner per...fectly" drinks just as easily. Lots of local breweries have their one or two flagships but champion has a record in my book as being consistently excellent. I'm picky with beers but if champion is on tap I never hesitate to order myself a pint. Couldn't recommend more! See More

I hadn't been to the tap in a long while, and I'm puzzled as to why - your beers are delicious! I was particularly keen on your Lycan brew: thirst quenching but with a definite personality.

First time I've ever had 6 oz of beer in a 12 oz can. You guys need to get your quality control in line!

Hunter and his team pour their hearts and souls into every glass, every can, every customer. They also give tirelessly to the city they call home. Please support Champion Brewery. You’ll be glad you did.

Had a great time and the beer is perfect, can't wait to visit again. We were at the richmond location. Staff was great really helped my buddy who isn't a beer person find something he loved.

Above and beyond the product(s) which speak for themselves with how fast they fly off the shelves, I'm proud to support this business for the sense of inclusiveness and unity they promote and stand fo...r in our Charlottesville community. Thanks for being a safe and solid gathering space for so many, Champion! See More

Great local pub to meet with family and friends as you enjoy some awesome "true" craft beer. Always something new and exciting on tap.

Great beer! And, we love the laid back atmosphere. Great outdoor and indoor seating, too. We especially love playing Chickapig on the big board :)

Everything they brew is clean, flavorful and engaging. Definitely one of Virginia's top 5 breweries.

I bought the Black Me Stout cause I saw Against Me! on the can, I'm a fan. I'm not a stout drinker or a craft beer enthusiast but I must saw this is a tasty beer!

One of the best out of some amazing Cville Brewers. Love that these guys are constantly experimenting with beers. This brewery is an M. Knight Shyamalan movie gone good.
