James River Brewery offers a variety of beers at all times of the year. Several of these are available all year; others are seasonal and offered at different times of the year. The following is a list of all of our flagship and seasonal beers; not all are available on tap at any one time.
James River Brewery, although founded in 2015, follows the spirit of the "Reinheitsgebot" (German Beer Purity Laws from 1516) in that nearly all of our beers contain only malted grains, water, yeast and hops. Very few of our brands include adjuncts or other additives like coffee, chocolate or other flavorings.
