Williamsburg AleWerks

Alewerks Brewing Company is a craft brewery in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. It was established in 2006[1] by Chuck Haines[2] on the site of the old Williamsburg Brewing Company.[3] It is the oldest microbrewery still running in Williamsburg, recently celebrating their 10th anniversary.[4] The brewery utilizes a direct fired brick-clad Peter Austin brew house which distinguishes it from many larger breweries which use a steam based process. The brewery offers tours of the facility and tasting sessions,[4] and talks about the history of beer.[5] Currently, they have 16 running taps in house with 6 core yearly beers, 4 seasonal selections, and 12 Brewmaster Reserve small batch selections distributed in Virginia, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania.
