Our Story


Brass Cannon is a Veteran and W&M Alum owned craft beer micro-brewery and tap room, called The Cannon. Tightly tied to the community in which we live, Brass Cannon was founded in 2012 by local enthusiastic beer fans and home brewers. 

Initially, we were a bootstrapped operation cobbling together a 100 gallon “Franken-Rig” from commercial steam heated dough frier components in Toano VA. 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. The result was a move down the road to Williamsburg and to design and install  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 of this tumult and the ever changing craft beer business, we never lost our commitment to the beer. Because that is how it started... We just wanted to make good beer that could be enjoyed with friends.

Today, with the craft beer market changing fast, we have to keep up, so we are always changing too, trying to improve and staying current. If you stop by today, you’ll find us in the midst of redecorating to make the Tap Room more of a hang out and fun place to be. You’ll see our “can to go” machine so you can walk out with any of our beers canned on the spot just for you. You’ll see we have expanded from 6 taps to 12 Taps, with 6 of them small batches. The other taps are also rotating but that just means the beers are on tap for longer periods of time while we swap in amongst our award winners and long time favorites. 

When you stop by you may still find the founders hanging out in the Tap Room, but you'll also find new staff from the brew space to front end, all of whom love the beer and are willing to engage and inform. You'll find an expanded Tap Room experience for Craft Beer aficionados and those who love them in what we now lovingly call The Cannon. 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 Virginia colonists first brewed ales back in 1587… and we’ve never stopped!
