Three Notch’d Sour House

Located in the historic Dairy Building on Grady Ave., our original taproom in Charlottesville is now the Sour House, dedicated to creating sour, wild, and barrel-aged beers.

What’s on tap

At the Sour House you’ll find sour and wild ales, barrel-aged and fruit infused ales, and everything in between. This is a place where we push the boundaries of what beer can be; our little experiment in the craft world.

What is Sour Beer?

The term sour covers a range of different beer styles, from lambics to goses. The ‘sour’ or tart taste is produced by a combination of brett yeast and Lactobacillus which creates higher levels of acidity in the beer. Spontaneous fermentation, wild yeast, and other contributing factors make up the range of sour beers on tap.


Tours of our Sour House brewery are available by reservation. Please contact us for more information about tours.
