The Best of Craft Beers in a Friendly Atmosphere Right in Williamsburg.
Then there is The Cannon Tap Room at Brass Cannon Brewing Co. who does not distribute or sell to restaurants and you can ONLY get their beer by going to their Tap Room (though they do offer take-away growlers and on-the-spot freshly canned selections to order from any flowing tap, no restrictions).
From humble beginnings using a cobbled together home made 4 barrel system to it’s current all stainless rig, Brass Cannon has gone its own way and bucked conventional wisdom. Most significant may be the decision to stop trying to make beer that can be mass produced or that appeals to the least common denominator in the beer consumer.
Brass Cannon has decided to carve out their niche as a true craft micro brewery making only small batches for the discerning craft beer aficionado. Their slogan of “beer for people who love beer” says it all. For example, Brass Cannon’s Hazy Daze Lager is a trip through a flavor profile far beyond the Lagers that are being distributed these days. It’s a Lager the way they used to be done before all the flavor was wrenched out them to make them appeal to the masses.
Or, their Angry Scot – Wee Heavy Scottish Ale which is unapologetically touted as an “anti-IPA” and that contains black molasses and is far more devoted to malt character then the hop craze that has swept the industry. Of course you can still get hoppy beers at Brass Cannon but they tend toward balance and richness of flavor rather than simply bludgeoning the consumer with bitterness!! Finally, the 6 taps at The Cannon that contain the truly nano-batches are not to be missed.
Depending on when you drop by The Cannon you might find a Peach Cobbler Ale, a Coffee Infused Black Wheat, or the highly citrusy Fresh Squeezed Ale, but whatever is on these taps it will be something special and probably something visitors have never had before, ever!
