Blue Mountain Brewery - Lunch will be served here
Starr Hill Brewery
Partake in our craft beverage adventure available on Fridays and Sundays at 11am! Enjoy a beer and cider journey along scenic Nelson 151 with visits to some of the area’s finest craft beverage producers.
You will visit Crozet’s Starr Hill Brewery, a pioneer of Virginia craft beer and the second oldest brewery in the state. Enjoy a tour of their production facility and then kick back in their tap room while sampling such notable brews as the Northern Lights IPA and Jomo Lager.
Step off the bus at Blue Mountain Brewery and take in the views of the Blue Ridge Mountains while you walk down the path toward the pub. Beautiful days at Blue Mountain include sitting on the patio enjoying your lunch while tasting each of their hand crafted brews. After lunch, head into the yard and play some corn hole or head back into the brewery for a one-on-one tour of our 15 barrel brew house.
You’ll also visit Virginia’s flagship cider producer, Bold Rock Hard Cider, where you can explore their cider barn and experience a close up view of the bottling line. Wind down your tour with a Virginia Apple or India Pressed Apple and as they like to say, drink in the scenery until it’s time to head back home!
