Father and son team Rick and Austin Ivey have taken their love of craft beer to a storefront in Ladysmith. The brewery’s name comes from the 30-acre farm the family owns in Beaverdam, where they grow their own hops as well.
The team currently has 5 beers with names such as Roy's Big Bad Brown Ale, Quake Stout, and Smashed Bastard, which lend to stories of people and places close to the family. The beer is sold in a variety of sizes (16oz., Grenade, and Growler) as well as offering a flight, or beer sampler. Visit the website to learn more and join Rusty's Beaver Dam!
Rusty Beaver Brewery is located off I-95 Exit 110 in the Food Lion shopping center. Open Wednesday-Saturday 12-9pm and Sunday 12-6pm.
