Overview

Since 2012, Smartmouth has helped shape the Hampton Roads craft beer scene with unique styles, quality ingredients and an emphasis on flavor over flash. No gimmicks, no funny business, just an appreciation for well-crafted beer and a desire to share it with others. At the end of the day, we are “beer geeks,” who make beer, think beer, talk beer and drink beer. It’s what we do and it’s what we love. Today, we distribute a variety of beers throughout the state of Virginia, in addition to serving our local community. We embrace our roles as stewards of craft beer and we thank you for your support.

Swung in for a couple drinks with friends and stayed half the night. Great saison and amber. Enjoyed the food truck on Friday nights and enjoyed throwing the bags out back. Plenty of seating inside and outside. Safe area with ample parking if your driving.

Great local place to enjoy a local beer. They have knowledgeable staff and a nice tasting room. I have brought the kids here and they have fun drawing on giant chalk board or playing some of the games outside.

Taproom is set up with long tables for socializing, easy ordering and reasonably priced. The flights come with a booklet to read about each beer in the collection. We did the tour, which was quick but fun.
