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...

What a really nice brewery and restaurant. Their location 10 minutes off of the interstate makes them an automatic stop for me on my way to visit family in WV. They usually have 2-3 seasonal and specialty beers on tap at all times to go with their regular stuff, which always entices me to stop by.

The food they offer has been stellar everytime I've eaten there and the staff is always polite and welcoming. The huge front patio is great on nice days and there's always people playing cornhole out front too.

The only thing I wished was changed was the size of their flight samples. They sell 2oz samples of all their offerings as the flight where I'd prefer to choose 4-5 and get a larger sized taste. That's just a minor personal gripe, though as I really like everything about this place. Good stuff and definitely worth a quick jump off the highway to try.
