Center of the Universe Brewing Company is a full production brewery with a tasting room located in Ashland, Virginia.

Center of the Universe Brewing Company (or COTU for short), began back in 2009 when Chris Ray and his brother Phil began brewing beer in their houses. The hobby turned into an obsession, and the obsession has led them to open up a craft brewery in Ashland, Virginia. Located in the heart of Central Virginia, it is affectionately known as "The Center of the Universe". COTU will be brewing an assortment of ales using only whole ingredients, while sticking to the traditional all-natural method of brewing beer.

At Center of the Universe Brewing Company it all revolves around the beer and the people who enjoy it.
