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

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.

Came here at night. Super busy as the long bar was 3 or 4 people deep. Staff seemed busy and curt. Didn’t eat anything and filled two growlers. Meh

Good place to eat, nice menu, great location and both indoor and outdoor seats available. They offer several samplers. The beer is OK, but the food is delicious.

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.

A very large place, with plenty of parking, though it’s pretty dense gravel. Inside there are thematic taxidermized, positioned animals that offer quite the comical thrill. A pretty large bar, and a wide range of seating inside and out. On tap they have their several year-rounds, plus an array of seasonals and limited offerings. The food is kind of expensive, but pretty good.

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.

This is a large place in a beautiful setting. Plenty of parking. Not five minutes after I sat down, one of the brewers came out to the bar and said, "Come smell the beer!" So four of us dutifully trundled into the brewery to inhale the malty goodness of the boil. Nice appetizer for a tasty lunch and plenty of unique beers I hadn’t had before. Worth the trip.
