Liquor Laws

Staying a week at the Wyndham Kingsgate and was curious about the liquor laws in Virginia:

1. Sold on Sunday?

2. Where is it sold? State run liquor store only?

3. Any local beers that I should try. I like trying the local brew when I travel. I can get a Budweiser anywhere.

4. Anything else I need to be aware of?

1. Re: Liquor Laws

1. Wine and beer can be sold in grocery stores, convenience stores, K-Mart, etc. any day of the week. Sales are prohibited between 12 midnight and 6 a.m. however.

2. Liquor (spirits) are sold only in the ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control) stores Monday - Saturday. Certain areas of Virginia have some ABC stores open on Sunday, but in Williamsburg, they are not.

3. Well, Anheuser-Busch, now owned by InBev, brew locally. :-) But I know what you mean. Williamsburg AleWerks is a local micro-brewery. Here's their website: http://www.williamsburgalewerks.com/

Berrett's Restaurant stocks a number of Virginia wines and brews both in the restaurant and in the outdoors Taphouse Grill.

4. Williamsburg Winery has a tasting tour and a restaurant, the Gabriel Archer Tavern. If you're at all interested in wine, it is a good place to visit.

If you get the opportunity, stop in at one of the Greene Leaf Cafes - on Scotland Street near the restored area, or at New Town - and enjoy a most incredible selection of draft and bottled beers. If you can make it on Monday, burgers are half price and delicious.
