Notes: We love our home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and we love the Blue Ridge Parkway, a 469 mile scenic journey of mountainous wonder that showcases the natural beauty and unique heritage of our region. Beautiful vistas, distinctive music, oddball characters and fantastical folklore are just a few of the things that make our home a special place. Here in the Roanoke Valley, we have all of this in our backyard— and it’s enough to make a man mighty thirsty. At Parkway Brewing Company, we will take you on a journey you can savor, one delicious beer at a time.

A solid place to hang out, grab a beer, play some games, and listen to music. They have a super solid Wednesday Trivia night. I might be partial but I love this place, it's definitely what I'd call a community watering hole.

Really good communal vibe. Lots of outside seating as well as a living room and fireplace where a band was playing. Pretty decent beer selection, but nothing too dangerous. Staff was friendly but very busy. Food truck was good but ran out of food quick. I would like to try it again and probably will!

Have been here twice, once on a beer tasting tour and the second time was for their yearly oyster festival. Not much in the way of frills, but they are a smaller brewery. Friendly people working there, the oyster festival was loads of fun despite how cold it was. Good selection of beers, particularly of ones they don't normally bottle. Not a bad place to spend an evening listening to music and knocking back a few.

Parkway is a work in progress and their success is going to result into a very nice tap room. So the vibe is coming...be patient....I was able to sit on a comfortable sofa in front of a fire....quite nice. The quality of the beers was very good. The service was friendly but really didn't talk to much to them. There was plenty of beer styles to choose from. I had an enjoyable time there.

Very laid back place. Food truck on property and a nice greenway in front of the property. Very cool place both in and outside.

Visited on a warm Friday June 27th afternoon. I really like the location of this place in an old light industrial site backed up against a wooded hill. It gives the feeling of being in a clearing out in the woods (which reminds me of my high school kegger days back in Western Washington). They had a cool three piece band (mandolin, guitar/dobro, upright bass) playing an interesting mix of styles (blues, jazz, etc but not bluegrass). The crowd was a little older than your usual brewery patrons, but everyone we talked to was nice.

They only had five taps going including a witbier, kolsch, Baltic porter, and two IPAs. I'd already had their Get Bent Mountain IPA around Roanoke and really liked it. I found everything else to be okay. The bar (the only service) setup was a little awkward being deep inside the building despite most of the patrons sitting outside. It would be better to have the bar closer to the door or even an outdoor bar. There's plenty of room inside the building and Parkway's website indicates an expansion is in the works of both brewing capacity and diversity of styles.

They don't serve food but there was a food truck on hand.
