Virginia is truly for Craft Beer Lovers and travelers and craft breweries nationwide are taking notice. In the last decade, the Virginia craft beer scene has exploded, creating social spots in cities across the state where travelers can soak in some local flavor. This statewide craft beer scene developed some award winning small businesses, but also piqued the interest of nationally recognized larger craft brewers. In the last two years, Stone Brewing, Deschutes Brewing Company and Green Flash Brewing have all decided to open East Coast locations in Virginia including top-notch tasting rooms. Whether you want to hire a driver, taste flights and compare flavors at more than one brewery or enjoy a pint after a brisk hike, Virginia can provide the perfect local beer.

Many breweries allow pets on their patio or other designated outdoor areas. Vaccinated, friendly, and leashed dogs are welcome outside, but not in tasting rooms. Due to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) law, pets must remain outside the tasting room at all times. Dogs must kept on a leash or within a pet carrier and under the control of their owner at all times.
Please designate a driver. Drink responsibly.
