About Tin Cannon Brewing Company

At Tin Cannon Brewing we are internally driven and extremely passionate about creating new and unique beers. Any style is open to interpretation. Historically, Aaron Ludwig has brewed to traditional styles, and John Hilkert liked to veer slightly off of the classic path and push style guidelines.

As brewers, we believe that it’s up to us to brew as great a beer as we possibly can so we can introduce our customers to both classic and new tastes. We’re continually experimenting with new ideas. Of course, it takes great consideration to design a style that pushes the limits, and we don’t make changes just for the sake of being different. When it comes to Tin Cannon’s beers, just as in culinary arts, we look for ingredients that complement and contrast certain flavors. We immerse ourselves into the selection of the finest raw ingredients, artfully adding a pinch of this and a pound of that, to create a product that reflects both our skill and imagination. Tin Cannon’s craft beers are passionately and artfully created, crafted, kegged and served onsite in our Gainesville, Virginia brewery / taproom.​
