8 Shires Coloniale Distillery
Eight Shires Coloniale Distillery is a small craft distillery located within the Historic Triangle of Virginia, near the heart of Colonial Williamsburg.
Eight Shires prides itself on its research, preservation, and education of the history of distillation from the Colonial American Period, encompassing the years 1578 – 1797.
All of their spirits are hand-crafted using historic recipes and ingredients from the 17th and 18th centuries.
Alewerks Brewing Company
We’re beer people. Some say it, we live it. We drink it, think about it, and talk about it… For us, it’s been all about making great craft beer going on 16 years now. Whatever your favorite style of beer is, you’ll get the best version of it at Alewerks.
Alewerks L.A.B. Taproom
Here at the Little Auxiliary Brewery (L.A.B.), we get to experiment and have a little fun brewing some small-batch beers throughout the year. You’ll still have the same great selection of quality beers as our Brewery Taproom but expect to also try new recipes and collaborations with other breweries at the L.A.B., conveniently located in the heart of a world-class shopping destination.
Billsburg Brewery was born from our love of traditional lagers, pilsners and ales and our desire to create a space where family, friends, and the community as a whole could gather together and make great memories. Our brewery is nestled on a 10-acre marina with breathtaking views on the water, just off the Colonial Parkway, and mere miles from America's original brewery. We work hard to craft our favorite beers and we're excited to offer our patrons lagers, pilsners, and ales reminiscent of America's rich brewing history.
Copper Fox Distillery
Copper Fox Distillery was founded by Rick Wasmund, with the idea of making whisky differently. Our first location in Sperryville since 2005, and in Williamsburg since 2015, our newest venture sprawls across an historic 6-acre plot that previously hosted the Lord Paget Motel. At both locations, we start from scratch--floor malting our locally grown barley, flavoring the grain with fruitwood smoke in our kiln, distilling in one of our custom copper pot stills, then aging with a progressive series of hand toasted wood chips in used bourbon barrels. Free tours on the half hour. Whisky Flights, Tastings and seasonal cocktails for a small fee.
Precarious Beer Project
We created Precarious Beer Project for people who love beer and love life. The way we see it, the world is a beautiful and precarious place. We’re all on an adventure, here to take chances and enjoy every minute,
Our own Precarious adventure began in 2017 within the 700 square foot brewery portion of the Amber Ox Public House in Colonial Williamsburg. Just a year later, our founders Andrew Voss and Chris Cook took a chance on their vision of a larger, dedicated location—just a few blocks away in Merchant Square.
The Precarious Beer Hall opened with a world-class tasting room, a street-style taqueria called Electric Circus Taco Bar, an arcade with vintage games, and multiple outdoor spaces. It was an instant institution.

Virginia Beer Company
The Virginia Beer Company was founded with the intention of being a force for good in the form of a brewery. Active philanthropy is at the heart of our business and we strive to support & build up the community in which we live, brew, and play on a daily basis.
Our beers are only as good as the people with whom we share them. That starts with a talented team and extends to our guests, Full-Time Friends Social Club, and the people in our community.
Inspired by Europe’s finest estates, the Winery is presided over by two generations of the Duffeler family – united by a single goal: to make wines with great character. Here, we share our enjoyment of wines, our stewardship of the land, our love of family and friends. In addition to the Winery, The Williamsburg Winery is also home to a 28-room Boutique Hotel, Wedmore Place, and two restaurants; the Gabriel Archer Tavern and the Café Provencal.
