from the brewery
Our brewery team, led by Jacque Landry, has the unique advantage of customizing our ingredients and our process. We are hands on from the very beginning of the operation when we plant our barley on the reserve. We showcase and take pride in the land that we call home and are truly a farm-to-pint Charlottsville brewery.
Our grains are malted locally by Murphy and Rude.
With the this kind of control over the process we are able to experiment and get creative with our craft beer.
Our four-season outdoor bar is enclosed and heated through the fall and winter. Take in the mountain views or watch our brewmaster at work through oversized windows looking into our brewery. The game is always playing on the big screen TV.
The space also functions as our pizza kitchen. On special weekends you’ll find our kitchen team tossing dough and fire-cooking pies.
Inquire about private tastings and cocktail parties in the outdoor bar space.
