Welcome to 1781 Brewing Company, Fredericksburg, Virginia's premier farmhouse brewery. We are one of the first farm breweries in the great state of Virginia, and the only one with a vineyard and winery on the same property, Wilderness Run Vineyards. Here at 1781, we strive to produce the best French, Belgian, and German influenced farmhouse ales this side of the Atlantic.
We are right in the middle of some of the most historically significant battlefields in the entire country, such as the Chancellorsville battlefield, and the Wilderness battlefield. We are so close in fact, that the very site where Stonewall Jackson's arm was amputated sits on the farm.
With so much historical significance surrounding the farm, it was only fitting that the name of the brewery reflects it! During 1781, General Marquis de Lafayette was busy shadowing General Cornwallis' movements as he set his sites on Yorktown. It was during this time that General Lafayette was recorded camping just down the road from our property. Months later, Lafayette, along with Washington and 17,000 soldiers defeated the British and won the Revolutionary war.
