DRAFT TAPROOM is opening soon at 425 E. Main Street on the east end of Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall, across from Commonwealth Restaurant & Skybar. An absolute beer lover’s dream come true, we are independently owned taproom and casual restaurant which will feature 60 taps focused on a large, diverse selection of craft beer styles, along with a small selection of hard ciders and wine.


At Draft, customers will pay for beers by the ounce, accessed through an innovative self-serve pouring system that offers the freedom to try a variety of beers without committing to a full pour. Our taps will be sectioned by beer style, allowing patrons to easily navigate the carefully selected, consistently rotating bounty of offerings that will range from hop-heavy IPAs to robust porters and light lagers, among many others. A significant portion of Draft’s taps will be dedicated to the high-quality craft beer being made locally in and around Central Virginia.
