(US backlog Sep 2012) Glorious stop on our way out of Charlottesville in search of the Skyline Drive and a way into the Blue Mountains. Basically a well-stocked craft beer lodge with spectacular views, ample indoor seating and typically professional service, up to vigilante-style parking ushers. I expect the hop stakes just next to the outsoor seating area are an extra atmospheric addition, but being Sep evidently all hops had already been harvested. Range of own beers on draughts for samples is great, although I feel many of their brews would benefit from some more time in the test tubes/barrels to truly come into their home-grown potential. Decent enough but not very inspiringly presented pub grub, friendly and slightly over-eager young student staff, easily overburdened by the relaxed beer geekís FAQs amidst hords of families on a summer outing. Would gladly stop over again or go somewhat out of my way to visit again, but none of 8 beers sampled inspired me to take along a growler full for the rest of our road trip..

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.

Enjoyed a day trip with my sweetie yesterday and we stopped in here for a late lunch. Nice location (if it had been warm, the outside looked like it was particularly nice). Despite being packed, the service was speedy and friendly. Nice selection of their own brews which we enjoyed. Food was decent but basically pub grub. Prices were average. A nice stop on a nice day. Iíll go back when Iím back in the area.

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.

This brewery/brew pub is nestled right in the blue ridge mountains and they take full advantage of that. The building itself looks like a mountaintop lodge/cabin and out on the patio you can take in the mountains themselves. Inside youíll find a big open yet inviting space with a lot of natural wood. I sat at the bar for Sunday brunch and sampled a few of their harder to find brews and enjoyed some amazing biscuits and gravy. The selection is good, though they only feature their own beers along with some local hard cider and some interesting non-alc beverages on tap (like kombucha). You can buy merchandise and get a growler fill. Everything is super fresh (they grow most of their own hops on site). Canít wait to go back.

Excellent brews paired with a scenic location make for a great Virginia Brewpub. A must visit, especially after a full day of skiing in Wintergreen. As far as the beer goes, all were quality but The Full Nelson Pale Ale was the stand out winner.

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.

Stumbled upon this place on the way to North Carolina. Picturesque setting with view of the Blue Mtns. Sampled some beers there and liked the place so much that we stopped by again on way back. The food we had was very good (veggie pizza and bratwurst) and staff was friendly and helpful. I will definitely try to make it back here soon.

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.

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.
