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 including our own news and reviews.

Feel free to peruse our shop to purchase 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, claim a listing in our Directory as well as leave reviews for your favorite Virginia craft beer-related breweries and establishments.

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!
