“It’s taken us over two years, thousands of emails, and hours of conversations with a few generous brewery owners around the country to get to this point.  I feel like a little kid on Christmas Eve.”

– Chris Ray, President of Center of the Universe Brewing Company

The Center of the Universe Brewing Company began back in 2009 when Chris Ray and his brother Phil Ray began brewing beer in their houses. The hobby turned into an obsession, and the obsession has led them to open up a craft brewery in Ashland, Virginia. Located in the heart of Central Virginia, it is affectionately known as “The Center of the Universe”.
