Quick walk from the downtown mall!

First time visiting. Try flights of their beer for a good variety. Shower beer is a good light beer choice. Tart was also good.

My husband and I stopped in for a flight of beer. I would say most of the ones we chose were not to our liking. the space itself was nice and we were able to sit and watch the olympics on the TV. Not sure I would go back though.

Champion brewery is located downtown on 6th street with ample on street parking. The tasting room is not very large, but they have a good selection of craft beers. I tried the IPA followed by the sour beer called Tart. Both were good, and the server was both friendly and knowlegable.

We wanted to taste the beer at Champion. It was highly recommended . But when we got there ( very difficult to find) it was closed as they prepared for an evening event. It was a very hot day and we walked quite a distance as nothing was posted on their website to say they would not be opened. We... More

I highly recommend this place for a casual night out. The outdoor seating is awesome. Beer isn't bad either. They have board games & corn hole for your entertainment. I'm not from the area, so I'm sure the atmosphere is a little different when college is in session, but it was super chill when we were there!

Champion isn't the easiest place to find but that is what GPS is for and you'll be glad that you took the time to find it! The brewery itself is beautiful with plenty of seating plus outdoor picnic tables and lots of parking. Also, they had a food truck the day I was there so there was food available. (I'm... More

My wife and I stayed in the Charlottesville area this past weekend. The weather was crappy and we were looking for somewhere to spend the evening. It is a little hard to find but was great once there. They have a good selection of craft brews. I had a stout and an Ipa. My wife had a stout and a... More

There is nothing too special about this place. But the beer selection was good and service was fast. Didn't really need much else.

Pretty awesome assortment of beers. Their branding is fun and the beer flavors are adventurous. The brewery itself isn't that exciting and the staff weren't overly welcoming or exciting. The patio is fun and a great spot to relax around the fire.

This was our first stop when we arrived in Charlottesville for the weekend. The staff is friendly and will guide you thru their selection of beers. Try a flight then pick your favorite and chill outside!
