Kardinal Hall is a modern take on an Alpine-inspired beer hall & garden. Located in the historic art-deco Coca-Cola building built in 1939, the repurposed warehouse & bottling plant is situated in the Midtown area of Charlottesville, Virginia. Brothers Josh Hunt & John Woodriff were enthralled by other beer gardens they had visited in various U.S. cities & in Europe. They thought their hometown of Charlottesville needed its own version of this fun & historic concept. And so, the first steps of Kardinal Hall, Craft Beer Garden, were formed.


Kardinal Hall features a heavy emphasis on community. Our large open floor plan inside, and large outdoor area create a perfect gathering space for parties both large & small; and for friends, co-workers, and families. We offer an enjoyable, casual environment with farm to table food, top quality craft beer on tap, wine & cocktails, all paired in a truly unique setting.

Food & Drink

Made in-house & from scratch, the menu reflects the best of Charlottesville’s locally-sourced tastes & modern twists on Alpine-influenced plates & classic bar fare. 

Kardinal Hall features 25 draft rotating craft beers, as well as a large and diverse selection in cans and bottles. We like to feature traditional European breweries, local Virginia craft breweries that are creating exceptional beer in all styles and search nationwide for the best possible beer to offer. Come find out why we are known as a top craft beer bar in Virginia.
