The wife and I had only one morning/afternoon in Charlottesville before driving across Virginia and West Virginia to Athens, Ohio. Beer Run was our beer place of choice, after walking around downtown C-ville and before touring Monticello.
Beer Run was mighty busy on a beautiful, sunny Sunday at brunch/lunch time. All the outdoor tables were occupied but we found a spot at the bar. The bartenders were busy and hangover but still managed to provide good service.
17 taps, with a bunch from Founders because of a tap-takeover that had happened the night before: Backwoods, Smoked Porter, Boyl'r, All Day, Centennial... and Devil's Backbone, Yards, Allagash, Natty Boh, Lagunitas Sumpin', Bluegrass Bourbon Barrel...
The food is simple but mostly organic and local. I had an egg-scramble that didn't disappoint. Bloody Mary's are delicious too!
The store attached to the bar/restaurant ain't bad either but you won't find anything rare there. They have all the major names in American craft beer, and they are a bit pricey... 25 dollars for DuClaw Retribution, 16 dollars for Xantus... damn, I've scored cheaper in NYC!
Still, this is a great place. Beer, food, gourmet coffee... a bit of everything. I would definitely visit again.
