The Brewery

Founded in June of 2013 by Jonathan Wright, Redbeard Brewing is a nano-brewery with an attached taproom and beer garden in historic downtown Staunton, VA.  Our brewhouse is a ~3 barrel system and we have a total fermentation capability of ~20 barrels. Each batch is hand crafted by one person from beginning to end, using ancient techniques, but modern equipment.  Our beers are brewed with high quality Belgian, German, and American grown malts, American and imported hops, and Staunton municipal tap water. Typically American, English, and/or Belgian styles are available,on 10-14 taps.  Our beers are unfiltered and un-fined.  Being unfiltered our beer will often pour somewhat hazy. 

We are open seven days a week from noon - midnight.  We are not a full service restaurant, but we encourage you to bring in your own food or have anything delivered or picked up from one of the many local restaurants around town.  Please check out our menu book located behind the bar for options!  We offer charcuterie snack packs behind the bar, as well as other snack & soda options in our Vending Machine that takes cash or credit card!
