  • Beers are really good! We had a flight and a snifter of the Orange Stout. The flight was super tasty and we really liked the variety. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. The new design of the tap...  more »
  • Always love coming here. Staff are really friendly and chatty and happy to discuss beer for ages. Did 2 flights of beer and never found any we didn't like. Particularly liked the Ray Rays pale and the...  more »

  • Living in Central Illinois, I rarely have an opportunity to drink anything from Center of the Universe. However, my Mom loves me and knows what I like and she has been bringing bottles of El Duderino to me when she visits. Perhaps it's a peace offering or bribe to let her stay in our home. Whatever it is, it works and I LOVE El Duderino. While visiting my parents, I finally got to visit the home of El Duderino. We were so excited to get there, we showed up at 3pm, an hour early. Oh the disappointment! After an excruciatingly long hour, the time had come...however there was NO EL DUDERINO ON TAP! My heart was broken a little bit but never fear, they have lots of other great brews AND you can buy El Duderino in bottles and drink it there. My heart was full and so was my belly. The Orange is the New Stout was awesome and we got our growler filled with the Slingshot Kolsch. I regret nothing. Did I mention I like El Duderino? ;) Of course I had to buy one of their shirts! I wore it on my return trip home and another passenger recognized my shirt and said that Center of the Universe was awesome. Agreed, friend!!! The shirt was only $20 and it's super soft cotton. You should rock one, too. Seriously, though, this place is great. I WISH I remembered the bartenders name. She was really great. She knew the beers very well and gave great recommendations. There was another gentleman walking around checking on everyone, talking about their beers. You can really tell they care about their products and their customers. I don't make it to the Richmond area too often, but this is one place that's at the top of my list for when I return!
  • Great brewery, with tons of fantastic beers to try. They have a neat table to sit at in the middle
  • Great beer. Nice tasting room. Knowledgeable staff. My favorite brewery in RVA.
  • Great place with nice people. There is a good variety of beer depending on your taste and the staff will definitely help you find the one that most closely matches your tastes. I am a fan of the sampler where you get a bunch of half beer so that you can taste some of everything.
  • I came in looking for one brew, bummed to find out they had quit making it. Fell in love with "Travesty" though. Good beer and good service definitely worth stopping in and having them pour you one. Will be back.
