Drank a few beers here with obguthr, pleasure! This is a large place with a gorgeous view of the "mountain"-like bumps in the landscape. Huge patio, pretty crowded on a nice sunny spring day. Service was prompt and friendly. Beers were very tasty, and there were plenty of new ones for me. Food was good with large portions. Well worth the easy trip from C-ville.

This is a large setup complete with a busy restaurant, a couple of bars and outside seating on the patio area. We even spotted a pouring unit outside that must get used during the warmer months. Bonus points for its location, with a lovely view over the hills. The tap beers were pretty good and well brewed. Efficient service, I think I counted about two dozen wait staff so it gives an idea on how busy it gets here. We didnít eat on our visit but heaps of food options on the menu. Slightly off the beaten trail but worth a visit.

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.

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.

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.

Visited here right before closing time on a Friday evening. This place is massive, with a couple of different bars and serving areas. Professional ambiance, plenty of merchandise available for purchase. I tried a flight of 10 different Blue Mountain beers and was pretty happy with the quality on offer. The foodís nothing to write home about, but itís cheap, filling. Service was attentive. Overall, an established venue thatís well worth a visit.

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!

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.

Interior is open and welcoming, though it lacks the lived-in feel that adds charm. It has plenty of patio seating outside, booths and tables plus a long bar inside. Bartender is friendly but not familiar. Canít say a lot about the food, but the pretzel is great - and that mustard will clear out your sinuses. Bluegrass and indie music is at a level where you can enjoy it but not so it interferes with conversation. This place is worth finding in Virginiaís Blue Ridge region.
