Craft Breweries of Williamsburg

Raise a Glass to the Local Breweries Around Williamsburg

Williamsburg is home to more than just the rich colonial history of the United States and to the second-oldest institution for higher education. Beer has been woven through the history of the area and the Founding Fathers. From learning recipes from Indigenous communities to the thousands of breweries that call this country home, one thing is clear: beer reigns supreme.

If you are looking for a cold beverage after a day of exploring Williamsburg, there are plenty of craft breweries within a 10-minute drive from our Williamsburg bed & breakfast (including one within walking distance!) to choose from.
