Knowledgeable staff, 20 or so beers on tap which are constantly rotating. BL does the NEIPA really well but don’t sleep on their other offerings. Cool venue with a great beer garden.

Small taproom in Roanoke VA. They offered a pretty good selection for a smaller place. I believe they are moving to a larger facility about a mile away. Standard bar atmosphere. The beers were flavorful. The service was very good. The selection was a good eclectic mix. I had the Barbie Juice and the Slave To The Grind, both were satisfying. I'd like to return once they move to the bigger location.

Great little brewery with a constantly rotating selection of small batch beers. Solid craftsmanship, slightly experimental, and the best service I've ever seen at a brewery.

Big Lick is definitely not in it for the money, very small place, very limited opening hours, very limited beer selection and they are not necessarily good beers. If you do find a good one it won’t be there on the next visit because the beers keep changing.

Nice, but tiny nano brewery in Roanoke. Beers are solid and always rotating, which is the main draw for me. The pint prices are fine, but growler fills are 18 bucks, so beware. The other issue, also due to the very limited batch sizes, is that there are only a few beers on tap at a time. I think they'd like to have 5, but when I was there, there were 3 beers on tap and one of those was about to kick. Big Lick is already a great little place, but if they increase their capacity somewhere down the line, watch out!
