Great local beer in a growing craft beer / brewery movement in Hampton Roads. The Sat afternoon we went was absolutely beautiful outside, and they had cornhole and heaters set up for outdoor drinking. There was southern rock band playing, tons of beer choices and varieties for every palette. PLUS you can fill your growler. Bonus! Food truck outside for... More

Smartmouth never disappoints as they are true masters of delicious craft brew. The staff is always smiling and friendly; and their tasting room is always full of happy and engaging people... My favorites are Notch 9 DIPA and their seasonal raspberry saison, both are yummy... Give them a go😎

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.

Good beer selection, friendly staff. Staff are knowledgeable about their beers. No food onsite but they offer a rotating group of food trucks. Fun place with outdoor seating.

My wife and I dropped by their tasting room on a Sunday afternoon to try their latest beer. It's a fun place and you can easily strike up a conversation with other patrons. in a "fest hall" atmosphere. They have a menu of 8+ regular beers and a smaller group seasonal brews. They have something no matter your taste in... More

My husband and I had a great time enjoying locally brewed beer. We already ate but the tacos from the food truck smelled amazing. We really enjoyed the tour and the live music. I wish the tour was longer and covered more of the back story and that they included a sample with the tour.

Although I'm much more of a lager and stout person, my boyfriend LOVED their variety of IPAs and ales. The atmosphere was laid back and somewhat retro. The outside patio had corn hole, giant jenga, and even a couple other games. There was an interesting food vendor there who specialized in waffle sandwiches. Staffing was prompt, friendly, and happy to... More

We have been drinking Smartmouth beers for about a year and we knew the brewery was close, but no idea HOW close! They've got a great feel at the end of a dead end street, complete with some outdoor seating, food trucks, corn hole boards, the hanging ring game, and supersize Jenga. Beers in the flight we had were delicious... More

I loved Smartmouth! They had great bartenders, really good beer and a rest set up outside! There were tours going on while I was there but I didn't have the time to go. I would definitely recommend this brewery.
