First Anniversary Block Party

First Anniversary Block Party

Join us in celebrating Reason Beer’s first year in Charlottesville!

We've only been open a year, but we've already got a lot to celebrate. At the beginning of 2018, we were recognized as one of Beer Advocate's best new breweries. In August, Microfestivus selected Collaboration 29 as the best hoppy beer from over 90 craft breweries. That same month, we were invited to share a pint at Governor's Mansion in Richmond in honor of our collaboration with Beer Run, Kardinal Hall, Murphy & Rude Malting Co, and The Charlottesville 29.

You're welcome to come get a peek at our growing barrel program, sample beers from our 8 draft lines, and test a few of our limited edition bottle-aged beers.

Closed August 11th, 2018

Closed August 11th, 2018

Hate has no place in Charlottesville. 

This is our town, the town we love, the town we grew up in, and we were all sickened by the cruel acts of racist protestors who came to Charlottesville on August 11th and 12th, 2017. 

Out of respect for the families who lost loved ones last year, and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our staff, our customers, and our community, we've decided to remain closed tomorrow, Saturday August 11th, 2018.

Please stay safe this weekend, be kind to one another, and speak out if you feel the need. We'll be back Sunday with a cold pint and a safe space for the good people of our hometown.

Our first Double IPA, New SOP, debuts Saturday, January 20th, 2018

Our first Double IPA, New SOP, debuts Saturday, January 20th, 2018

Notes of tangerine, grapefruit, apricot, rose petals, and papaya give this delicious DIPA depth and intricate flavor.

Brewing with creativity and balance is Standard Operating Procedure at Reason Beer, and New SOP carries this tradition to bold new ground.

Clocking in at 7.5% ABV, New SOP hovers at the more temperate end of the DIPA spectrum. We’ve taken advantage of cutting edge Cryo Hop technology in order to dial up the flavor without maxing out the booziness. 

Cryo Hops are farm-fresh hops finished with a special cryogenic process that concentrates the resins and aromatic oils of the hop flower and filters out vegetal cone material. The result is a deeply layered palate of citrus and floral flavor with restrained bitterness. New SOP’s subtle underlying malt character supports its complex hoppiness without getting in the way of the flavor.

This beer pours a beautifully clear golden color with a brilliant white sudsy head. New SOP is clean, smooth, and almost dangerously drinkable with a brisk, dry finish.

To celebrate the release of our newest beer, each customer who purchases a pint of New SOP on Saturday will receive a free Reason Beer logo glass.

This beer is very demanding to brew and has a brief window of peak freshness. New SOP will only be available on draft in the Reason Beer Tasting Room and only for a limited time.
