There really is not much to say outside of; this place is amazing. My wife and I went up on Memorial Day weekend, and it was well worth the almost 2 hours drive. The views from the outside eating were just astounding. Everyone was extremely nice and welcoming.

The atmosphere was great, relaxing and beautiful.

The quality of the food and everything was tremendous. The food was all fresh and local, and it wasn't the run of the mill brewery/pub food.

They had a great amount of options. And everything we tried tasted amazing.

The beer, the most important part, was awesome. A great selection of their brews on tap, and their sampler was very well thought through as they showed you the best order in which to drink them and had plenty of information about the beers.

I recommend that anyone who wants good beer, and good food go to Blue Mountain.

This is the best brew pub in Virginia. There are a lot of great breweries that are warehouses with the food truck model, but that doesn't work too well for non beer drinkers. Still, BMB has some of the best food to rival a restaurant and the beer is outstanding. Will always swing by...

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...
