Our Story


Brass Cannon is a Veteran owned craft beer brewery and tap room, called The Cannon, tightly tied to the community in which we live.

Initially, we were a bootstrapped operation cobbling together a 100 gallon “Franken-Rig” from commercial steam heated dough frier components. That was the rig where home brewers learned that commercial brewing is another animal entirely. It became clear that to make quality beer and to do it over and over again, a new rig would be required. As a result we designed and installed  a brand new 20 barrel (620 gallon) all stainless steel gas fired brew rig in a purpose built building. Throughout all the ups and downs  and the ever changing craft beer business, our commitment to the beer remains our top priority.

Today, with the craft beer market in deluge, we are adapting and always trying to improve. Stop by and check out our redone Tap Room we call The Cannon and our Newly opened Beer Lounge. We made it more of a hang out joint and a fun place to be. You’ll see our “can-to-go” machine operating so you can walk out with any of our beers canned on the spot just for you. You’ll see we have expanded to 12 Taps, with up to half of them small batches. The other taps are also quasi-rotating but that just means the beers are on tap for longer periods of time while we swap amongst our award winners and long time favorites. 

When you stop by you'll find our staff making the experience worth your time from the brew space to front end, all of of our staff love the beer and are there to engage and inform. You'll find an expanded space for Craft Beer aficionados and those who love them in what we now call The Cannon Tap Room at Brass Cannon Brewing. And you'll find at least one new beer every week!!


So, come on by The Cannon and enjoy something truly different in craft brewing right here in Williamsburg VA near where intrepid explorers first brewed ales back in 1587… and we’ve never stopped!

Then, come OCTOBER we launch a month long celebration we call  GHOSTOBERFEST when we also  start collecting for the Toys for Tots and the VA Food Bank. But in the end, the brewery is about the Beer and Fun. Fun with friends old and new. Fun with family you were born to or family you choose. To help that along we are constantly offering entertainment and options to give back, but we are nothing if not just a place to relax to do the most important thing in life... spend time with each other!
