place is awesome- great food, great ambiance and view- you look onto the mountains from the patio, and great beer. Really enjoyed myself there. The mostly organic menu was a treat, as I had a bratwurst made locally. The service was outstanding- we were in and out in an hour which was important as we were in a big hurry due to a wedding later that day. The inside of the place was very modern and comfortable, and the outside was killer. No hops to speak of as we went after the harvest, but donít expect a big old farm with tons of hops. this is a small operation- one of the coolest beer places I have been too.

This small and sometimes crowded brewery turns out some really amazing beers. The food is grown on local farms and everything Iíve had has been very tasty. Worth planning a trip to any day.

Blue Mountain is an amazing spot. The beer is as fresh and smooth as it gets. The brewmaster knows his stuff and is constantly experimenting, try the seasonals they are excellent. The food is as good as the beer. Like the hops, the food focuses on local ingredients from Nelson County Va. and compliments the beer well. A must-try if youíre in the neighborhood. Try sitting outside for an afternoon brew while the weather is nice.

We have been buying growlers for many months. But lately we have had time to have lunch. The view from the dinning area is of Afton Mountain. They are planning an expansion South of their building. The food is excellent. Limited choices but all good. Bathrooms are clean and staff are very helpful. New enlarged dinning area, bar and terrace. The changes more than double area for service. We stopped by on the Saturday of UVA and VT. It was crowded with football fans getting lunch and some great beer. This a must visit if you are West of Charlottesville.

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.

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 neat beer destination not far from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Great view, large indoor and outdoor seating, and a large and attentive wait staff. I went for lunch and they were geared up for several large parties so that may have been why all the staff was there. It would be a cool place to hold an event. Food was upscale pub fare. The beers were solid. That had hop vines that they just harvested and i would love to go back and try the wet hopped beer when it comes out. Well worth the stop.

Probably the best brewery in the area. Always a good beer to meet any palate here and the food is definitely the best of the 3 pubs on 151.

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!

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.
