Dang… No. VA ABC law prohibits any outside alcohol on the premises. That said, we make damn good beer!

Yes, we offer reservations. Requests for groups of 8 or should call ahead to reserve a table (add phone number). We are also available on Mondays and Tuesdays after 6pm for private events. Please email [email protected] for more info.

We are a 36 seat Nano brewery, with multiple standing rails for you to enjoy your beer. We added an outdoor patio, which is open on weekends weather permitting.

YES WE DO! On Thursdays and Sundays we also offer 20% off growler fills.

We have a partnership with El Tio and will have a taco stand in the brewery. You can also call in your order and one of their awesome servers will deliver to our brewery… BUT… more news to follow (no outside food allowed at this time)

Dogs are permitted outside in the patio area only. We know it’s a bummer but only service dogs (vest required) are allowed inside the brewery per Virginia regulations. We recommend calling ahead to ensure the patio is open before leashing up your pup.

Because our brewery has an open space concept, you can see everything! Depending on how busy we are, we are happy to provide tours of the space. Be on the lookout for special events with our Head Brewer who will be hosting tours and brewing discussions.

We sell 1/6-barrel kegs from the tasting room. We require a $100 deposit on all keg sales.

We sure do! Please ask a Beer Guide for details.

100%! SDE is committed to contributing to charitable organizations in our community. Talk to us (provide link to email) about supporting your organization for special events. We offer complimentary space for non-for-profits and will host private events Monday – Tuesday and Wednesday.

Yep, we currently have a modest selection of merchandise. However, as we grow we will offer a variety of shirts, glassware, hats, hoodies, stickers and so much more so that all our SDE fans can share the love. We hope to add new items each season! Don’t forget Privy Council gets first crack at new merchandise!

While we are a family friendly environment, we’ve recently had to implement some “Rules of the Road” due to unattended children. Apparently, some parents have confused your favorite brewery with a Chuck E. Cheese. To be sure we are all on the same page and all our patrons can enjoy the environment, there will be none of the following – no matter your age!

  • No Screaming
  • No Running
  • No Throwing of Anything
  • No Blankets or Play Mats in the Tasting Room
  • No Children in the Brewing Area

Please respect our property including the games provided for your entertainment. Parents are solely responsible/liable for any damage caused by unattended children. We offer soft drinks, juice boxes, bottle water, and board games for the entire family.

Please contact Ferment Nation at [email protected] or 877-210-BEER (2337) if you are interested in purchasing SDE beer for your restaurant/bar/venue!
