This was our first stop on a mini beer-cation throughout VA and NC. Turns out that this was also my favorite stop!
The setting of this place is pretty much ideal. An inlaid patio for outside seating is situated right next to the hop-yard. Across the street, the Blue Ridge Mountains (I think that is the right range) carve out a serene setting. The inside of the pub is rustic in decor, but still crisp and new. Very high ceilings with lots of natural, exposed wood mix with new steel to give this a "modern lodge" like setting.
We ordered a cheese plate and a flight which included all of their offerings (9). I also ordered a tulip of their BA pumpkin beer, called Spooky I think. Everything was superb!
Our waiter paid just enough attention to us, without being pushy. He knew lots about their beer, and about the cheese plate, which is what most of our questions were centered around!
They sell beer to go at the front counter. They also have a number of brewery products (glasses, shirts, etc.) available.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone! They seem to really do things the right way, using all local products where they can. I really wish it wasn't 5 hours and many winding roads away...

Went on a Saturday and the place was absolutely packed. Luckily with indoor and outdoor options we were able to get a beer and a table rather quickly. There were lots of outdoor tables, an outdoor bar, lots of indoor tables and an indoor bar. They also had some cornhole boards set up which was pretty cool. The mountain view at sunset was pretty amazing too. So on to the beer...about 6-8 standard offerings, a couple seasonals, a couple barrel aged options and some affordable 750 ml bottles. Definitely worth stopping by as the beer was very good, the food was good and the atmosphere was very nice.

Stopped in on the way back from Devils Backbone. Have had a few of their beers in the past, so had to stop.
The atmosphere was great outside. Music, cornhole, lots of people. The weather was great. Inside it was ok. A bunch of wooden booths, etc. The bar was packed.
The quality of the brews was great. We got a flight of everything. Really enjoyed the Red Zepplin and the Kolsch. Grabbed a growler of RZ to go.
Service was meh...ok. I would ask a waitress a question and she would just say she wasn't my waitress...blah blah blah. Our waitress was sitting in the booth behind us jabbering with some blue hairs.
Beer selection was good. I think 12 or so on tap, not to mention a bunch of stuff in bottles.
The vaule was good, but they really jack up the prices of their growlers. A regular growler was like $10 and if you wanted the swing top it was an extra $10. Figure growlers shouldn't be where you make your money, but I don't own a brewery.

Visited here last Sunday with Da Boss for lunch and a couple of pints.
Atmosphere was awesome as we were seated outside with a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Inside was nice as well. As you first walk in there is a small bar that was on the right and a retail area was on the left. I did not go in any further although i could see a decent number of dining tables.
Quality of the beer is good. I had the Full Nelson and the Impy Red Zeppelin which are good brews. Da Boss had the Kolsch which was very clean from what she said.
Service was friendly and pretty prompt for a busy last lunch crowd. I did not test the knowledge of the server so i cannot really comment on that.
Selection of beer was good as there were a wide range from wheat and kolsch brews to imperial reds and stouts.
Food was tasty. Da Boss had a wrap of some sort and i had the crab cake sandwich. Sides were solid as well as the Slaw and fries were tasty.
Overall it was pretty reasonable (Less than $40) for two sandwiches and three pints.
Definitely visit if you are in the area...you will not be disappointed.

Great place for lunch or dinner when the weather's nice. Lots of outdoor seating, and there's a fantastic view. Beer selection is good, and there's frequently stuff on tap that Blue Mountain doesn't bottle and distribute elsewhere. The food's great as well. Highly recommended.

Great beers and also a great view of the mountains from the fantastic beer garden. Also a nice hop garden is visible. The food here is very good and the beers are great. Flights are reasonably priced so you can try everything they have to offer. Also part of the Brew Ridge trail.

This is my favorite restaurant and watering hole. I have visited often and have never been disappointed. The food is always hot and fresh. The burgers are always perfectly cooked to order and flavored to compliment their wonderful brews. The staff was always able to articulate the different styles of beer they offered and how they differ from other brands.
Be forewarned, parking gets short around dinner time in the evening.
You can order a beer sampler.
The fries are the BEST ...Must have!
