Not quite what Iíd expected, the brewpub sits along a fairly busy road in Virginia mountain wine country, not from Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park. We visited mid-afternoon on a holiday and virtually had the place to ourselves. It was quite the cozy and inviting place and welcome respite from the crisp fall temperatures. Blue Mountains brews, some of which are availble in bottles down in southern Virginia, are all quite tasty. The food during our visit was exceptionally yummy and home made, and the excellent service topped off a great visit. Highly recommended! - Brewery #466, 11/11/2008.

A worthy stop a bit outside of Charlottesville. The hop farm was still dormant at my visit, but the trellises were in place and ready to support (ha ha). The beers are above average, and the food is well prepared. A new patio was being built, just in time for the spring and summer weather.

man, what a weird place for a brewery. I absolutely love the building, the location, and the ambiance. It could not be more tasteful. I had some beer cheese and hummus, both of which were pretty tasty. The beers spanned a reasonable spectrum and I liked the two I had. Itís too bad that this is so far off the beaten path. I would like very much to visit again in the future.

This brewpub is located deep in the heart of wine country, and it looks like it. Picture a beer hall combined with a wine tasting room. The staff is very friendly, and both owner and brewmaster are there all the time and are very approachable. The food is very good with a local emphasis. A bit expensive, but high quality, and there are a couple of inexpensive options. Beers range from easygoing and highly quaffable to extraordinarily good. They messed up once and it resulted in a beer that people are begging them to brew again. Six beers available at a time. They have some bottled selections to go and now offer growlers. Easy to miss when you drive by and it does get CROWDED. If you are visiting the Charlottesville area and have limited time, make sure you hit here and Devils Backbone before you do anything else.
UPDATE: The brewery has expanded a great deal. The old brewpub is now used for special events and a whole new restaurant has been added, along with a massive beer garden. The bar is longer, and has a lower feeling, giving it a more cozy feel. They are up from 6 taps to 10. The food menu has expanded along with the new kitchen, but the portions are small for the price. Probably the most beautiful place you can have a brewed on premise beer in Virginia.

This is a small, cozy brewpub located in a small town in the mountains. When I visited on a Monday evening, most of the tables were full as well as the small bar. They had ~5 taps with some interesting styles (old ale, barrel aged impy). The food menu is short but the food is very good (I split the crab dip and had the pulled pork sandwich). Definitely a chill place to settle down and enjoy a few pints. They also offer some of their beers to go + growlers. I had a great time here!
Edit 12/7/2011: They have updated the brewpub since I was last here. The old area is now a special events area and there is a brand new bar and restaurant right next door. Itís quite nice, all wood fixtures, a larger bar and much more open space with huge ceilings. Today they had 7 offerings, with 2 new to me (Iím visiting in the same month as last year so the seasonals are the same). Great beer and the new space makes the place even better!

If you didnít see the sign out front, you would think that it was just a house up on a hill. And the interior decorations add to that effect. Very cozy lounging areas as well as solid wood tables for eating. Almost felt like a winery rather than a brewery. I didnít try the food but the group that I was with could not stop raving about the advacodo sandwiches they enjoyed. This was the first stop on the www.JRHB.org 2008 Brews Cruise, and they were very accomodating to our group of 30. Lots of free samples and very friendly staff.

Pretty nice place, they have a nice setup, pretty good food, and a solid selection of beers. The outdoor area is really nice with some tables and corn hole, and other stuff to do. The inside offers a nice atmosphere as well. Worth a stop if you are in the area for sure.

Went there with some friends while I was visiting central Virginia. Was just warm enough to sit outside, so we did - a little windy but it was busy inside and outdoor sitting was a lot better. Beers came out relatively quickly based on how busy it was, food too - was pretty tasty food.

This place rocks, and so does their beer. Way out in scenic Afton, its a lovely location. The place is somewhat small especially for the crowd it draws. If you want to get a parking spot, you might want to show up slightly before it opens, but the crowd may be more managable during the week. Spotless location, with a spotless brewery. The tours are very interesting and the sampler is very good. Food is excellent, but somewhat slow given they only have one cook and the crowd bogs down the kitchen a bit. Certainly worth dropping by if youíre in the area.
