The Beer

The beers of BCB are brewed with a philosophy of balance, making brews that are full-flavored but can still be enjoyed all day. We try to make something for everyone and keep a wide variety of beer styles, but we mostly just make the beer we like ourselves and offer it up for your pleasure! All of our current beers are available at the brewery in Williamsburg. We offer year-round brews, seasonal beers, occasional special releases and small batch langrage beers that change often.

Many of our beers are available in 12 ounce cans. Buy them one at a time, in six-packs
or by the case for a great party!

Year-Round Offerings

Our main-line brews are available every month of the year. These are the beers you are most likely to find in a bar or restaurant.

Barrage Brown Ale

An English style brown ale with some American influences. This beer is medium-brown colored with a thick, creamy head. Carried by a delightfully creamy mouth feel, a subtle but very complex flavor profile is presented that is malty, nutty and easy to drink. An experienced taster will pick up a blend of hop flavors with low bitterness as an herbal seasoning to the impressions of malt, caramel, and toast. This beer uses imported hops and base grains from the UK blended with American made specialty grains for balance. 5.5% ABV

Angry Scot

A Scottish Wee Heavy style ale that is malty and smooth with a minimal hop impact. This beer is a dark amber color with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is bready with honey-like notes that blend together like sopaipillas. Full-bodied, but not too thick, this beer has all the malty sweet flavors of a traditional Scottish ale with a subtle smokiness and the added complexity of oak and imported black treacle. At almost 8% alcohol, this beer is strong, yet incredibly smooth and easy to drink. This is a dangerously quaffable ale. 7.8% ABV

Muzzle Flash American Amber

Loaded with hop flavor and aroma, this beer does not have the bitterness normally associated with hoppy brews. The appearance is a rich honey-amber color hinting at its smooth, caramel flavoring, which balances the pine and citrus notes of Cascade hops. Summit hops add a unique, but not overwhelming character of onion and garlic that round out the hop impact of this beer. With a medium body and slightly sweet finish, this is an extremely drinkable brew that is characterized by aromatic hops, rich malt taste and an uncommonly mild bitterness for such a hoppy brew. 5.8% ABV

Broadside IPA

Our IPA uses a blend of American and English hops to create a beer that is the best of both worlds. Combining Columbus and Kent Goldings hops, Broadside starts off with well rounded aromas of pine and citrus balanced against the earthy notes of the revered English hop variety. Those same flavors unite with crystal malts to create a vivid hop sensation without excessive bittering. Rye malt adds a subtle spicy character to the profile and creates a tongue coating sensation that blankets the entire mouth with hoppy goodness. This is a single IPA, so hop flavor and aroma take center stage while the bitterness, although definitely present, does not overpower them. The name Broadside was chosen by popular vote through our Facebook page and now we're proud to provide a beer that you all helped us create. 6.8% ABV

Smoothbore Stout

A deep black ale with a thick off-white head. The mouth enjoys a luxurious coat without the heaviness one finds in most strong bodied stouts. Coffee and dark chocolate, with a hint of toasted bread and vanilla swirl across the palate as this beer is imbibed. The addition of steel-cut oats further defines the silkiness of the body and provides a very mild sweetness. This stout is exceptionally smooth and easy to drink despite its dark chocolate notes and complexity. This beer won a gold medal at the 2017 Virginia Craft Beer Cup! 5.8% ABV

Seasonal Selections

Our seasonal beers rotate every few months and return as the seasons come back around. These brews are designed to compliment the weather and reinforce the shifting temperatures.

St. Barbara Heather Ale (Spring)Available Now!!!

St. Barbara Sorghum Ale is a gluten-free ale brewed with sorghum, honey, heather tips and lemon peel. St. Barbara has been known for ages as the patron saint of smiths and artillerymen. Brass Cannon Brewing's St. Barbara Ale is a light, crisp ale that starts with aromatic notes of honey and flowers. The smooth, easy drinking body is followed by a light lingering bitterness on the finish. The floral notes and lively palate makes this an excellent spring beer that is well paired with sandwiches and light pub fare.
3.8% ABV

Split Shot (Summer)Available Now!!!

The Split Shot is an American Wheat Ale brewed with 50% malted wheat and 50% malted rye. There is no barley in this beer at all. The Split Shot is a light colored, medium bodied wheat beer with a clean flavor and subtle spiciness. A fantastic brew for hot summer days. This was our very first seasonal brew!
4.5% ABV

Kanonefest (Fall)

A Mšrzen style beer that uses ale yeast instead of the traditional lager yeast. The higher fermentation temperature adds another layer of complexity to this already complex style. Malty with bread, grain and biscuit notes, this is the type of brew you want for your own Oktoberfest celebration.
6% ABV

Great Turkish Bombard (Winter)

This is a beer for the coffee lover. Using a porter as the base, we add dark roasted, fine ground ethiopian harrar coffee to give this beer a distinct flavor. We then blend in cardamom seed to create a mildly sweet and spicy note. This is a true breakfast beer that pairs well with bacon or sausage.
7.8% ABV

Special Release Beers

These are beers that we have made as special one-off brews. Made in larger batches than our Langrage brews, we do allow growler fills of these beers. Unlike the Langrage line, these beers have a good chance of coming back some day, but without a set schedule like our seasonals.

Gunpowder Black WheatAvailable Now!!!

Based on An American-style wheat beer recipe. This brew has the light and crisp flavors of that style. We also added some blackened wheat malt into the mix, giving this brew an inky color and a touch of roastiness. The contrast of a dark tint and light flavor profile shows you canít always judge a brew by its color.
4.7% ABV

Windage White IPAAvailable Now!!!

A fusion of Belgian Wit Beer and American IPA. The two disparate styles combine to create a new kind of beer that's greater than either one is alone. This beer is made with white wheat, orange peel, coriander seed and plenty of American hops to create a brew that is delightfully citrusy and aromatic. Delicious and refreshing, this is a perfect choice for any hop lover or wheat beer lover.
7.1% ABV

Langrage Line

lang∑rage [lang-rij] - noun - Shot formerly used in naval warfare for tearing sails and rigging and consisting of bolts, nails, and other pieces of iron fastened together or enclosed in a canister. The technical term for cramming random items into a cannon in lieu of a cannonball.

Perhaps our favorite name because few people agree on how to pronounce it. When things got desperate, langrage became a matter of loading anything at hand into the cannon barrel. Nails, yesterdayís biscuits, bits of bone... whatever. That is how we approach these recipes. Our langrage line is a series of small batch brews, consisting of experimental batches and variations of our existing beers that often involve weird combinations of whatever we feel like using at the time. These beers are only available in the tap room and rotate often, with no set release schedule.
