Our Story


Brass Cannon is a Veteran owned craft beer brewery and tap room, called The Cannon. We try to focus on the community in which we live while recognizing that many patrons are visitors coming to Williamsburg for things other than Beer!

So we try to strike a balance between local haunt and venue for fun, and a balance between standard great classic beer styles mixed in with small batches and a new release every single week. This approach seems to resonate with the old and new friends and families (and pets) that come through our door.

We are the only brewery in town and perhaps the only brewery in the region, that does not distribute its beer. You want Brass Cannon beer you have to come to the brewery. That has allowed us to be uncompromising in what we put in your glass and to be able to experiment more freely. Today,  the craft beer market is in deluge, and so many craft breweries have cropped up that competition is intense, driving the spirit out of the beer. 

And Brass Cannon has decided not to participate in that race to the bottom.

This brewery was started for the love of the beer and we have simply decided to continue on for the love of the beer.

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!

What Else Do You Need To Know?


Discounts for Vets and First Responders EVERY DAY

We are a Veteran owned brewery and we know what it means to "be there" for the folks around us and for them to be there for us. We want to show our appreciation and thanks at least when it comes to our beers! So, if you are an ER nurse or doctor, EMT, Ambulance, Fire, Police, Active Duty Military or a Vet.... let us say thank you... by offering discounts everyday.


Special Happenings or Events

Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter will find a major event at The Cannon tied to a special charity and themed through music, activities and information/learning.  For example MARCH brings SHAKE YOUR SHAMROCKS!! APRIL is our own ALE AID Jazz Fest. The rest of the high season we simply rock it out with fun stuff EVERY weekend. 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 (we donated over 100 toys and almost 400 lbs of food in 2019). 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... chill out... and knock back a top notch brew. Come on by and check it out!
