The Apocalypse Has Begun!

The meaning of apocalypse is the end for a new beginning. The end of bad beer is here!

Apocalypse Ale Works is the first brewery in Forest, Virginia since Thomas Jefferson brewed in the 1800's at Poplar Forest. The brewery is located in the old Forest Volunteer Fire Department, beside Pints O'Plenty, and features a tasting room for the public to enjoy our latest and greatest recipes. Currently, kegs are distributed all over the state of Virginia, with an emphasis on supplying local restaurants first. Canning production is also underway, with two of our pillar brews paving the way and more to come in 2015. Our mission is to brew quality beer for all palates. The end of bad beer is here!


Black Friday!

Enjoy the rich intensity of this english style Imperial Stout. The finest english maris otter and crystal malts have been mashed with english roasted barley and chocolate malts to exude flavors worthy of a victory of good over evil. Our lamb always conquers the dark side! This drink will be on tap Friday, November 27th, in addition to three variations: Wrath of the lamb with Chai spices, Wrath of the Lamb with Vanilla, and Wrath of the Lamb with locally roasted and brewed coffee. It's going to go fast, so be sure not to miss it!

Craft cans are now available in stores. Pick up some of our Golden Censer: Honey Wheat Ale and Red Hoppocalypse: Imperial Ale today and enjoy high quality beer from the comfort of your home!
