Fantastic Food at Blue Mountain Brewery, Afton, Virginia

Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton, VA is more than just a fantastic local microbrewery. It is also a Hop Farm and a member of the Virginia Green Program, emphasizing water and energy conservation. All of these efforts go towards producing an excellent assortment of beer. Want to sip a beer made from Blue Mountain’s Cascade variety hops? Then try the Full Nelson Pale Ale. (The Full Nelson is also available in 100% recyclable cans. Did you know that Blue Mountain was the first craft brewer in Virginia to introduce canned beer?) Sample the complexity of the Dark Hollow Artisanal Ale, aged for 100 days in an American oak barrel, or try out any number of seasonal, draft-only selections like the Imperial Pumpkin, the Chocolate Cherry Bourbon Stout, or the Hibernator Doppelbock. Also, don’t miss out on Blue Mountain’s scheduled events like Fish Taco Tuesdays and Geeks Who Drink Trivia. And speaking of scheduled events, did you know that August is Virginia Craft Beer Month? Sounds like the perfect excuse for a Blue Mountain Brewery excursion and a great way to end the summer season. (And don’t forget to reserve your cabin, cottage, or suite at The Iris Inn!)
