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.

They usually have a food truck outside with decent food. They have a limited beer selection that doesn't change often but the beer is food. Some outdoor seating, inside they've tables and benches.

If you looking for a nice brewery this is a good one. You can visit the brewery they have a food truck with nice burgers. I recommend the flight run, it is 8 taste beer.....the better one is Murphy’s Law (Amber ale).

This place really surprised me...the Double IPA was by far the best I've ever had! I also liked that they have games to play while visiting the place. The Amber Ale was also really good! RECOMMEND!!!
