Narrowing down where you want to go on a trip can be daunting. Why not leave the planning and details to the experts so you can focus on relaxing and enjoying yourself? If you’re a wine and beer lover, then look no further than the Williamsburg Tasting Trail. The tasting trail will guide you to tried-and-true breweries, meaderies, distilleries, and wineries, so you don’t get bogged down in sifting through every available option (and there are many!).
The tasting trail includes:
- Alewerks Brewing Company and its satellite location: includes a biergarten and up to 16 beers on tap
- Amber Ox Public House: a brewpub with an open-air patio
- Billsburg Brewery: a place for small-batch brews and views of the marina
