Billsburg Brewery: This beloved Williamsburg micro-brewery was opened in 2014.

It is known as James County's first brewery and is also known for its small-scale ten-barrel process which serves up fresh beers on the daily. Guests will enjoy four different beers at this brewery.
Brass Cannon Brewery Co: Brass Cannon was pioneered by three guys who started off brewing as a hobby. They created their very own process, called Franklin-brewing, and got started in a small strip mall. Eventually, they found a bigger place in the heart of Williamsburg and have since served up amazing drinks. Draw on the giant chalk board and sip on some of the greatest craft beer creations such as the Angry Scot Ale, Barrage Brown Ale, Muzzle Flash American Amber, and the crowd-favorite Broadside IPA. Guests will sample four beers.
Eight Shires Distillery: Founded by Dr. Bill Dodson, this brewery has been using some amazing recipes using 17th-century grains which help to formulate some unique flavors that you will not find anywhere else. The Eight Shires Distillery is known for their three different concoctions, Williamsburg Bourbon, Jamestown Gin, and Yorktown Silver Rum. Here, guests will be able to enjoy a flight or cocktail.
Silver Hand Meadery: Mead is known as the oldest fermented drink and Silver Hand Meadery specializes in captivating flavors and unique combinations. This brewery was founded by Glenn Lavender who went on to form the perfect recipe using natural ingredients like real honey, blueberry blossoms, clover, and more. There are six different meads served up here, from Scarborough Fair (rosemary and thyme) to the Virginia Moon and a sweet Soak Up the Sun mead. You will be able to sample various honeys and meads.
King of Clubs Brewing Company: Your bus tour ends at the beloved King of Clubs Brewing Company. This is the most unique stop on the tour, because it does not serve up beer or other craft drinks!
