Note: NO outside alcoholic beverages are permitted on the premises at any times. 

Amenities: 16 taps, beer to-go, weekly events, observation windows into the brewery, women's & men's restrooms, a family restroom with changing table, electric outlets, board & card games, children's books, and two filtered water fountains. The taproom features two viewing windows looking into the brewing area, as well as a viewing bar top running along both windows. Our roll-up garage door allows access to the beer garden on nice days, and access is always available via the side door on the far side of the taproom.

Ordering Your Beer:

Please feel free to order a beer from anywhere around the bar! When the taproom is busy, a line may form in front of our ADA compliant bar top near our packaged goods cooler. Don't fret - you do not need to wait in this line! Spread out around the bar and order the next round from the nearest beertender.

Chalkboards list the current day's beer menu as well as our Flight Plans. We recommend taking a photo of the board to keep record of this information handy (and to help us save the environment one menu at a time). We also have handouts to track your flight orders! You can find the additional information about our via the ON TAP page on this website. There, each beer is linked to an online description of the recipe featuring tasting notes and ingredients.

Beer To-Go: We will gladly fill clean, unblemished containers of (most of) our beers for takeaway purchase! It is illegal for us to list pricing online, so pricing is located under each beer listed on our chalkboard, with the last two prices on the right under each beer displaying 32 oz. & 64 oz. fill pricing. We also sell a number of branded 32 oz. & 64 oz. to-go vessels along with a variety of 12 oz. cans, 16 oz. cans, and 750 ml bottles. For keg inquiries, please call (757-378-2903) or email

Food & Drink:

We currently feature a rotation of food trucks on a weekly basis. The calendar of food trucks is fluid so we strive to promote daily food trucks at least a week in advance on our website, as well as daily on our social media feeds (links located at bottom of website).

We allow guests to bring in manageable sized meals. Please be conscious of your fellow patrons and clean up after your meal! We allow delivery to the brewery and feature an exclusive delivery menu with nearby Antonio's Ristorante Italiano, which waives delivery fees for orders to the brewery. We offer VA peanuts, VA chips, and sodas for sale as well. NO outside alcoholic beverages are permitted on the premises at any times. 

Pets: Per Virginia ABC law, pets are not allowed inside our taproom. While we love pups our facility is family friendly and we need to have a space for those who aren't comfortable around pets. That said - well behaved dogs that are kept on a leash are allowed outside in our beer garden! A water bowl is available upon request; we want to ensure everyone has the ability to enjoy a drink while visiting 401!

Please Note: Our facility is a non-smoking/vaping facility. Thank you in advance!

Parking: Additional parking options can be found at this link.


Interested in booking a special event with The Virginia Beer Company? We are closed on Tuesdays and offer the brewery for private events on this day. We'll happily discuss events on other days as well, but don't generally reserve space or large private functions during normal business hours. We do offer private tours and group reservations for special occasions. Just use our Book An Event form to fill us in on your event request and to receive information about availability/pricing. Please allow up to 48 hours for us to get back to you.
