Virginia's Micro-Brewery Cans

Virginia's Micro Cans: 2010-2014

My apologies, but I have to mothball this page. There are so many Virginia micros out now that I can not keep up. So this page will have to be just the first generation.

Within the past few years it's become economically feasible for small breweries (micros) to can beer. As a result, it's once again possible for collectors to concentrate on collecting current cans from a specific state, an ability that was mostly lost in the 1960s and 1970s as so many small local breweries closed. It wasn't much fun to collect currents from your home state if there was only one brewery left, and it was a big national company. However, now it's possible to collect cans from multiple breweries in a single state, as well as from states that had few or no cans before.

I collect micro cans from Virginia and Washington, DC as well as from Hawaii. (I also will collect micros from Dayton, Ohio (my home town) as well as Athens, Ohio and Madison/Hanover, Indiana (two places where I attended school). So far only Athens has any cans, but I am keeping my eyes open. )

At any rate, here are the Virginia micro beer cans. I have them broken down by brewery. Most of the labels are printed directly on the can, although a few breweries are using wrap-around labels. I noted these applied labels on the list when appropriate.

Note, to see the micro cans from around the US you have to check Craftcans.com! (link opens a new window) You can also check my page of DC cans.

If a can is not pictured here, it's because I do not yet have one for my collection.
