This was our first stop on a mini beer-cation throughout VA and NC. Turns out that this was also my favorite stop!

The setting of this place is pretty much ideal. An inlaid patio for outside seating is situated right next to the hop-yard. Across the street, the Blue Ridge Mountains (I think that is the right range) carve out a serene setting. The inside of the pub is rustic in decor, but still crisp and new. Very high ceilings with lots of natural, exposed wood mix with new steel to give this a "modern lodge" like setting.

We ordered a cheese plate and a flight which included all of their offerings (9). I also ordered a tulip of their BA pumpkin beer, called Spooky I think. Everything was superb!

Our waiter paid just enough attention to us, without being pushy. He knew lots about their beer, and about the cheese plate, which is what most of our questions were centered around!

They sell beer to go at the front counter. They also have a number of brewery products (glasses, shirts, etc.) available.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone! They seem to really do things the right way, using all local products where they can. I really wish it wasn't 5 hours and many winding roads away... (1,213 characters)

Little off the beaten path and nice place to visit. They have ten taps of their own stuff but I will say that it is nice that they represent multiple styles on tap (you won't find 10 IPAs on tap, for example). I had a flight sampler with my wife and there were a few big hits and a bunch of strikeouts (which would be great if this were baseball). The service was fast and friendly so no complaints at all on that. Not a complaint but the food is OK, at best, then you see the price for it and ouch. Guess it makes up for the cheap beer. If I come back it will be just to relax with a few cold ones. (605 characters)

Great setting and wonderful view at the mountain up toward Wintergreen. The outdoor area looks nice, but it was a bit cold and windy in December to enjoy.

The bar is nice. Much more of a full restaurant than a brewery with tasting room. Food is very good.

They will do flights of all beers which is nice.

A few great beers with a lot of just OK. Plenty of styles covered.

Pricing was reasonable. (403 characters)
