Join the Champion Beverage Club feat. CATAN Beer Series

We’re thrilled to be introducing an exclusive collaboration between Champion Brewing Co and the internationally-acclaimed board game CATAN! Each month, members of the club will enjoy a club-exclusive selection of unique Champion brews, all shipped directly to you.

Members will taste one of a kind, limited-run CATAN beers, each reflecting a different terrain within the game, such as Wheat beer (fields), Rye beer (pasture), Schwarz Bier (mountains), and more! Your membership also gives you access to being the first to sample the Champion Brewers series of beers — six limited edition beers our brewers are most excited about.

Join us for the adventure of a lifetime with one, two, or three cases monthly, all available for nationwide shipping! Our first 20 subscribers enjoy 20% off their first month with code MORECHAMPION.

This is a limited & exclusive run. Sign up here!

Champion Brewing

Champion Brewing Company is Virginia’s most progressive brewery, producing a wide variety of ales and lagers in our downtown Charlottesville tap room and our Woolen Mills production facility. We serve select brews, including one-off beers, from constantly rotating taps and one-off beers in our tap room.

New Releases

Champion Brewing Company has partnered with Duke’s Mayonnaise to produce the perfect lager to pair with the south’s favorite sandwich – a mouthwatering, Duke’s-slathered BLT. The Vienna-style lager, aptly named Family Recipe has a 5.1% ABV, 27 IBU.

Champion Brewing Company is a Charlottesville-based craft brewery with a three-barrel Tap Room and the Missile Factory, a 30-barrel production facility recently expanded to 15,000 barrels of capacity.

Ain’t no party like a CATAN party, cause a CATAN party don’t stop!

Today’s the day! We’re launching our beverage club, featuring the CATAN beer series with a big ol’ party alongside our pals at @settlersofcatan. 

Join us starting at 5:00 p.m. to be the first to try Field Harvest wheat ale. Current members can pick up their allotment starting tonight, and we’ll have a very limited amount of draft. Allotments for our non-local members will start shipping out today as well.

Come celebrate with us this evening and stick around for CATAN gameplay as well as the unveiling of our very own CATAN mural (🎨: @thenightowl) as part of a nationwide mural series.

It’s Oktoberfest! Whisk yourself away on a mental vacation to Munich in the form of a dazzling pint or liter of our Festbier and/or Märzen. Prost!
Bro, Bro, Bro, try this beer. Bro, it’s like a coconut dreamsicle. Bro, it’s like if a Missile and a piña colada had a baby. Bro, it’s like, full of Sabro hops and real, real delicious.

Tonight's the night, ya brutes! In partnership with @wtjuradio, we are beyond psyched to bring legendary punk hellraiser Lydia Lunch to tear up our stage this evening. RVA's @whitebeastband opens. Music starts at 7pm. FREE, or pay what you can. @lydia.lunch.official

“Shit is deadly serious, so let’s have a party and celebrate the fact that we’re still alive in spite of this nightmare.” –Lydia Lunch

In a no-holds-barred survey of a musical career spanning over four decades, Lydia Lunch, notorious NO WAVE FEMME FATALE (Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, 8 Eyed Spy, Queen of Siam, 1313, Shotgun Wedding), with her bandmates Weasel Walter (The Flying Luttenbachers), Bob Bert (Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore), & Tim Dahl (Child Abuse, The Hub), revel in a schizophrenic musical legacy looping from shrill NO WAVE to bludgeoning HARD ROCK, from smoky JAZZ NOIR and illustrated word to macabre PSYCHEDELIA.

White Beast (RVA), the militant anarcho buttrock/soundtrack for the death of democracy, created by filmmaker Jeffrey R. Rettberg and including WTJU alum Sam Roberts, opens.
Sunday serenity with a cold beer in hand. Can’t beat it.
Benefit show tonight with @geechiemarleyexperience!

From the artist:

The Geechie Marley experience was created to center and amplify Gullah culture through multimedia storytelling focusing on stories, traditions, land, and arts.The purpose of this project is to take people on my journey behind my camera lens from the coasts of West Africa (Ghana) to the Low Country of South Carolina where I was born and nurtured. It is important for stories like these to be shared because in Gullah culture , owning your story is controlling your story. Gullah culture embraces so much west African culture and is a unique and rich culture. My hope is to challenge black, brown, and white people to find their way back to their original selves so that they can know how to correct mistakes from the pasts in moving forward. In Gullah culture , we are Gullah first and race second . Breaking generational curses and cycles comes with a lot of challenges, but it is healthy to do in moving forward and taking accountability in making healthier narratives to pass down to our children. In efforts to do this and to help amplify the culture and keep Gullah alive, I use the different mediums of photography/videography that I specialize in to create this project to bring awareness , tell and amplify stories, create conversations , bring mindfulness, unity consciousness, free thinking and liberation to help free minds and preserve and amplify Gullah culture through my lens.
Exclusive Champion x CATAN beer series coming at you this fall! @settlersofcatan

Reminder that we’re closing the taproom from 4-6 p.m. to prepare for the show this evening. Please also read through our COVID-19 policy for tonight’s show. 

Doors at 6:00 p.m.
Show at 7:00 p.m.

COVID-19 POLICY for 7/4

Music is back with a vengeance at the Champion taproom and we couldn't be happier about opening our stage to a wide swath of local acts and underrepresented genres in Charlottesville. The outpouring of positive feedback from artists, fans, and the community since rebooting truly fills us up. 

With that overwhelming support comes a responsibility to our staff, our customers, the artists, and the greater community to strike a balance between fostering the incredible music scene in Charlottesville and doing everything we can to keep each other safe. 

The spread and rise in transmission rates of the Delta variant in the Blue Ridge Health District have forced us to again bolster our preventative measures at our facilities. As such, all attendees for the Black Tusk show this Saturday will be required to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, along with a matching photo ID. Proof of vaccination can be your physical COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or a photo of your card. Children under 12 will not be subject to this requirement.

The taproom will close briefly on Saturday afternoon from 4-6 p.m. as we prepare for the show. Upon reopening, all attendees and patrons must enter through the MAIN ENTRANCE on 6th Street where they will receive a wristband for the evening after showing ID and proof of vaccination. 

Finally, this show will be *pay what you can*. Donations of any and all size are appreciated.

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our community safe. We can’t wait to see you all on Saturday!
Perfect weekend for it
