Amber OX

About Us

When inspiration hits, sometimes it’s with a mouthwatering plate of smoked beef brisket with spicy tomato chowchow and a mug of full-bodied craft beer. At least that’s how the idea for the Amber Ox came to us. We’ve been friends for decades, working and collaborating together in the restaurant industry, and we share a passion for great food and craft beer. We saw a need for a cool, creative, casual and approachable new eating and drinking establishment in Williamsburg, and we decided to meet it.

With the Amber Ox, we wanted to combine our passions for running a restaurant to create a cool dining experience that you’ll really remember, centered around our passion for regional craft beer. We’ve loved doing our own home brewing for years and we wanted the Amber Ox to carry that same focus of handcrafted quality beer from our sister brewery, Precarious Beer Project, as well as beers from other regional craft producers.

At the Amber Ox, we’re serving beer to a demographic of people who also want to try new things. Our 18 draft handles will rotate daily and will always offer seasonally inspired beers from P.B.P as well as products from our fellow brothers in the craft brewing industry.

We’re focused on maintaining the perfect balance between innovative, Southern-inspired cuisine and an extraordinary offering of regional beers, wine and spirits for our customers and community. It’s through food and drink that we connect to our roots — and then to each other.

Cheers,
Andrew & Chris

Simple, elegant and suuupper crushable! $14.99+tax/ 4 pack. 2x case per person limit. Estimated to have 40 cases available.

Both beers will be for sale in cans, out of the Precarious Beer Lab brewery, located at Amber Ox Public House, in addition, draught of both options will be available inside!

No party is complete without Music and TACOS! Live tunes kick off at 12pm, provided by local favorite Sammy Lee, followed by the always epic Good Shot Judy at 2pm! Electric Circus Taco Bar, the soon to be street style taco shop inside the Precarious Beer Hall, will be taking over the Amber Ox kitchen, and slinging some delicious tacos for your enjoyment!

Two amazing beers, two amazing musical acts and killer street tacos!? How can you say no to that!?

PUBLIC HOUSE SERIES BEER DINNER - 6 PM

Join us Tuesday, March 26th at 6:00pm for the third Public House Beer Dinner of 2019! Featuring a 5 course meal, composed of progressive, southern inspired dishes that are paired with incredible, hand crafted beers from Precarious Beer Project! The March Beer Dinner has a special twist! The dinner will start with a small reception and "Sneak Peak" of the new Precarious Beer Hall, starting at 6pm! So instead of joining us for the pre-reception at Amber Ox, we will instead be meeting at the front entrance of the Precarious Beer Hall, located at 110 South Henry Street!

Tickets for the March Beer Dinner go on sale at 10am on Monday, March 4th for Draught Animal Members, and March 11th for non-members.

Limited to 60 seats. These dinners always sell out quickly, so we highly encourage you to call or stop into the Amber Ox and get your tickets before they are gone!

We look forward to celebrating an evening of progressive cuisine, craft beer and jovial laughter with you!
