Blue Mountain Brewery

Visit

Blue Mountain Brewery is a unique destination in the heart of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Blue Mountain Brewery is located on route 151 approximately 1.5 miles south of route 250. We’re  less than 20 miles from Charlottesville, 15 miles from Wintergreen Mountain Resort, and only 5 miles from Shenandoah National Park and Skyline Drive.

Our brewery site location also happens to be in the midst of Virginia’s finest wine region, known as “The Monticello Wine Trail”, between several of Virginia’s premier destination vineyards including Afton Mountain Vineyards, Cardinal Point Winery, Pollak Vineyards, King Family Vineyards and Veritas Winery.

What’s On Draft?
Our current draft list can be found HERE (on the left side).  We update this list as often as possible but our draft selection is always subject to change at the last minute.

Tours
Brewery tours are offered on Saturdays from 12pm-4pm and are complimentary.  They last about 20 minutes and reservations are not required.  Please let the host or your server know that you would like a tour and they will take you back to the brewery as soon as a brewer is available.

Tastings
Our sampler features eight to ten 2.5 oz samples of Blue Mountain Brewery and Blue Mountain Barrel House beer.  Samplers range from $7-$9 each depending on how many beers we have on draft during your visit.  Tax & gratuity are additional.

Reservations
We do not take reservations.  Monday-Thursday and Sunday evenings after 4pm we do take large party warnings.  If you have a party of 15 or more, please let us know in advance by E-MAIL  or by calling 540-456-8020.  This does not guarantee that we will have seating available as soon as you arrive but it does help us to plan ahead so we can get you seated as quickly as possible.  Unfortunately we cannot guarantee specific locations (outside, one large table, etc.) in advance.

Family Friendly
Our restaurant is very family friendly! We have a great kids menu and often have activities for kids on weekends & holidays.
