Breweries near Bedford VA. Tour and tastings

Breweries Near Bedford VA. Tour and tastings!

Last weekend a group of friends and I jumped into the car and drove from Bedford Va to Wicar crash with car and motorcyclentergreen VA to visit a couple of breweries. usually we visit are wineries but today we wanted something different.
Wintergreen is a short drive from Bedford VA, only about an hour and half, of driving with fantastic pastoral and mountain views. As we approached Blue Mountain Brewery, we spotted the most unusual car accident (if someone had been injured I wouldn’t post the picture).

Cheese and meat platter

Blue Mountain Brewery had a great selection of beers and we ordered the sampler of their beers. The building was great, nicely decorated with a small lounge area with sofas to relax and have a cold beer. There was also patio seating and a great menu for food.

We choose the cheese plate to eat with our beer, there was a mix of fresh fruit, bread, and unusual cheeses that were amazing. One of the cheese was a mustard cheese, never had it before but really enjoyed it.

Blue Mountain’s beer was great. It was a nice mix of different styles but I have to admit it was excellent and pared nicely with the Rockfish Wheat Summer Weiss Beer on a hot day.

Beer Sampling at Devils Backbone brewery

Beer samples

Next, we traveled to Devils Backbone Brewing Company in Roseland VA. Wow, what a place. The building alone wasvery impressive, a stone and wooden structure. Equally impressive was the beer which is produced on-site! We ordered the 10 beer sampler and were delighted with the choice of beer offered by the brewery. I enjoy Hefeweizen and the Wintergreen Weiss (a Bavarian-style Hefeweizen) was much to my liking.

After finishing our sampling, we were escorted to our table table on the patio, where we had a great view of the mountains at sunset and the man-made koi pond.  The food selection is comfort gourmet food.

Fish Tacos at Devils Backbone

Fish Tacos!

A great mix of high quality and comfort. Everything looked great and inviting. Several members of our party got the fish tacos, some got the Veggie Burger, I opted for the meatloaf and garlic mashed potatoes. Based upon the lack of conversation while eating, I would say everyone enjoyed their food.

What a great night we had! This week I also learned a new brewery is being built in the same area. So now we will have three to choose from and I haven’t even mentioned the wineries in the area.
