Roomy interior has the feeling of a ski or other wilderness lodge. Waitstaff are alert and quick. Food is classy, if not gourmet, and very tasty. They have a bunch of beers on tap, all theirs, and all good. Worth going down the winding back roads of Blue Ridge Virginia.

Nice open bar. Dinner seating and other tables available. Nice beer selection, all beers solid to say the least. Server very helpful though she was busy. Flights available pours are excellent size for one person. Didn’t eat. Parking plentiful. No customer WIFI available. Beautiful ride from the interstate. A must stop.

Not familiar with the area at all but this place is out of the way and off the path. That being said, I was really glad we stopped here. Huge parking lot, looks like they have outdoor concerts there with local music. Cornhole/baggo outside....with picnic tables... cool. Great view of the mountains! The building looks like a hunting lodge. Good size bar. Glasses, shirts and others gifts available. Outside deck seating with a outside fireplace... Pretty chill outside. Dogs welcome, and they have a little jack russel terrier who is cool dog. Some old school blues music was on. Server was friendly and fast. Dozen or so beers on tap all pretty good. Food menu has a lot of options with a variance in price. I had a sandwhich which was good. Overall, this was a cool place and hope to make it back. Well worth the detour we took to stop in

Update 2/2916: They have expanded an outdoor area. Fire pit, outdoor "food truck-ish" kitchen, outdoor bar with some rudimentary climate control and often different options than inside. Beers are still of excellent quality. Old reviews follow...

11/27/08: The brewery is located right off 151 behind a Ski Barn with a very blue roof. If you are coming from the North, watch out as it is easy to miss the turn. Big place, with the brewery clearly visible behind the bar, lots of wood and other touches, much of which is made from recycled material. Not all the beer was ready opening day, but the five available were all drinkable and three of those were very nice. Food was tasty. Prices reasonable. Service was friendly, but not too terribly knowledgeable about the beer, but this can be forgiven on opening day. They have 2-3 guest taps dedicated to other Virginia beers at all times, which is cool. Absolutely beautiful surroundings. This is a very cool place, and one that I will be visiting time and time again.

5/5/09... one that I HAVE visited time and time again!

12/12/11: I see I haven’t updated this in a couple of years, so I shall now. I’ve had every beer they’ve produced, or very close to that. If they’ve made a beer I haven’t had, I’m not aware of it. Wide range of beers, there are of course ups and downs but the overall quality of the beer is high and standouts are common. The food is always good as well. Lots of local stuff, and the meat smoked on premises is simply astounding. The place where their popularity affects them negatively is customer service which can vary quite a bit, though the bar staff is generally very good. I’ve gotten to know Jason the brew-master and he’s a cool guy. I originally rated this a 78. I expect that’ll be going up a fair bit in the next few minutes.

Another update 7/3/13. Boy these guys have grown. They now have a second production brewery with packaged product seeping into other states. Both breweries are currently undergoing expansions. I wish I could give this place a higher score for ambiance, because the outdoor setting is simply stunning any time of year. The customer service can still be iffy at times, but seems to be a bit better, and some people have now been there for years which certainly helps. The beer is still excellent and quality control is more consistent. The food is still excellent. Prices are still in line with the competition. Old score 84, new score 86

February 2009 - On the road to the Wintergreen resort, this is a beautiful building erected just for this brewery. We went on a slow weekday afternoon, so our service was very attentive and friendly. The menu is relatively standard pub fare with a few unique twists on old favorites -- we shared a hummus pizza and some soup, both of which were outstanding. We tried a total of 5 beers between us and all were well made, ’inside the box’ offerings. You have to mean to be out in this part of Virginia, but if you find yourself out there, definitely stop by!

Visited several times since they opened this fall. The building itself is constructed from pieces of old tobacco barns and other farm structures. The many stuffed animals add to the rustic ski lodge theme which is unsurprising given its proximity to the ski resort. The beer selection is updated frequently and new beers have become available on a sometimes weekly basis. Well worth a visit if you find yourself in the mountains of Virginia.

This Brewpub was visited on my wife’s birthday. It is located on the access road to the ski area Wintergreen The food was good. TV ’s were positioned well to eat and watch college games on Saturday. The outside tables had a super view of the Virginia Mountains. I had two of their beers. I look forward to future visits. Many of their beers have won medals in national competions.

Stopped in this place with yourefragile on our way from DC down to Winstom-Salem for the Barrel-Aged Sexual Chocolate release. Kind of out in the middle of nowhere, though the area is beautiful. Also impressive that there are three breweries in close proximity to one another here. First off, the parking lot is massive and consists of a gravel circle with more than enough room. Ahead is a nice amphitheater, which I assume is used for concerts. Once we got inside, there was a band playing off to the left. Nothing too loud, and fairly enjoyable. Nice hunting lodge theme throughout the place, though quite tastefully done. The brewing equipment is viewable behind the bar, where we sat down. Good service from the start. The place was quite busy, but the bartender did a good job coming back to us. As would be expected, plenty of German-style lagers on the menu. No surprise, as Jason excels here. Food menu was pretty diverse. There were approximately 10 beers on tap, with 4 regulars and then 6 or so new beers. The food was pretty good and at a reasonable price. I also loved the fact that they had multiple types of branded glassware -- pints, tulips, and weizen glasses. Very cool vibe at this place. I will definitely return the next time I’m headed down that way.

On the same road as Blue Mountain (Afton) and Wild Wolf (Nellysford). This is being made into a destination in the style of what Walt Disney might do for a rural brewery. The effect is mixed, because, with the improvements the p;ace has a lot of potential activity, but, along with that, it seems a little inauthentic and artificial. The staff was friendly and attentive on a Wednesday afternoon, and there are several really solid brews available as flights (at a very good rate). I didn’t try the food. Overall, very positive.
