The Virginia Beer Trail is a grassroots and craft beer-enjoying community initiative which aims to be one of the most comprehensive Virginia craft beer resources, directories and events calendars on the web as well as official and formal press releases often submitted by the breweries. We additionally offer weekly newsletters of our latest directory listings, events and news & info and our shop for purchasing VABT t-shirts and beer mugs.

We are a community-driven resource and invite you to share and collaborate your enjoyment and appreciation for VA craft beer. Please feel free to register on our site to submit a listing to the Directory as well as leave reviews for your favorite Virginia craft beer-related breweries and establishments in addition to our own reviews and commentaries.

Please note that our site is very much a continued work in progress. Feel free to contact us at beerdude(at)vabeertrail.net with any input, suggestions, criticism, etc. you might have. We welcome and value your input!

    #Repost from @bluemountainbrewery. #VABeer hops = yum!! — Hoptub: Wet Hop Harvest Ale --------------------------------------- Brewed with 500lbs of our own fresh ("wet") farm grown Cascade hops using the mash tun as a hop back. The hops were picked by our loyal customers during the annual hop harvest at our Afton brewpub and added to the beer within hours of picking. This very pale, simple IPA fermented with a neutral California ale yeast strain lets the green hop flavors shine through. This is what it tastes like to drink a fresh Cascade hop! ABV: 7% IBU:43 Available at the Blue Mountain Pub now and a bar near you soon!!!! #craftbeer #vacraftbeer #localbeer #nelsoncounty @vabeertrail
