Best of the Brew Brews to Taste Charlottesville is proud to be home to a myriad of microbrewers, tap houses, distilleries and establishments that specialize in crafting or carrying outstanding handmade beers, ciders and spirits. Beer lovers are sure to enjoy a visit to Kardinal Hall, Beer Run or Devil’s Backbone Brewing Company in Nelson County to experience a plethora of craft beer choices with delicious farm-to-table foods.
Virginia also has a long history of whiskey distilleries. The distillery at George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon (in Northern Virginia), is still in operation and was once the largest in America, producing 11,000 gallons in 1799. Other local distilleries surround Charlottesville and are interspersed amongst breweries, offering a wide range selection for a planned brew tour. Spirits are high for the future of the Virginia spirit industry with new tasting rooms continuing to pop up. Nelson County, VA

A wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon or evening could include live music at local cideries, such as Bold Rock, while sampling some of the new seasonal drinks. Carter Mountain Orchard also has a Bold Rock Tap Room so you can enjoy the mountain’s stunning views while enjoying a cider.
