James River Brewery is located in a 19th century brick tobacco warehouse in small-town, historic Scottsville, Virginia. Situated in a horseshoe bend in the James River, and Scottsville and its history is intertwined with the James: from a flat-bottomed river batteau or canal boat in the past centuries to present-day tubing and recreational fishing.


In its logo, setting, and names of beers, JRB honors the River and the past. Scottsville’s three Valley Street restaurants deliver food to the brewery, so you could relax in the beer garden alongside Mink Creek or in the taproom and enjoy burgers, pizza, barbeque or seafood while drinking JRB beer or ale. We have live on music most weekends, so check out our Events calendar and plan a visit.

History

Proud sponsor of the Fluvanna Marauders 2017 Traveling Baseball Team

​A brewery first opened in the warehouse in 2012, but the first two business attempts were not successful. James River Brewery reopened in 2015 with a new owner/management team, new brewers as well as a renovated taproom and beer garden. Our flagship IPA, JRB 3.0, is a wink to JRB’s recent past (and the earlier two IPAs) and our commitment to the future.
