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!

The building is a nice farm house and the brewery is the garage. The hops grow on the premise. They have a nice patio outside and deck. In a nice rural part of Virginia located at the end of skyline drive. The beers were very good and the food was excellent and inexpensive. I had a beer flight, appetizers, and fed a family of four for $50. I highly recommend it for lunch and a brew. There Dark Dark hollow beer is a world class beer and worth the trip alone.

A good place to go, especially for the beer - they make one of the best pale lagers I have had since moving to the US. The food is good though a little pricey. Quality service and good vibe though make this one of my favourite places to go!

a clean medium sized restaurant off in some farmland. small hop farm set up next door. nice enough place with an outdoor porch type set up. some pretty good brews and good food. friendly, smiling service and good value on everything. Growlers and six packs to go. good place to stop for awhile then MAKE SURE to drive on down the road to the DB.

You are going to be hard pressed to find a brewery with better views. Nice hop vines growing outside with spectacular views of the mountains. Unfortunately the service was less than stellar outside (painfully slow) and downright frigid inside (we were completely ignored for awhile). They have a good selection of their own brews but the food leaves a bit to be desired. Not completely overpriced, but you will pay a few bucks for a pint or two. Overall it is definitely worth stopping by if you are in the area. I hope to return again and see if the service improves.

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.

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.

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.

Not sure why I never reviewed this place until now, but this is a really great brewpub. Was referred here from Mark Thompson of Starr Hill fame when they first opened. The food is great, the beers are all very well made, the ambiance is cozy, and staff is very nice...........really, nothing bad to say about it whatsoever. It does get crowded, and the seating is family style, but that didnít bother me one bit. Iíll surely go back when in the area.

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.
