    Drink Local.

    Virginia offers true local flavor at more than 60 craft breweries, restaurants and bars, all with local love on tap. Explore the trails - Nelson 151 Trail, the Red, White and Brew Trail, or the Brew Ridge Trail - for beautiful scenery, delicious, locally-sourced meals and some of Virginia's finest craft beer.

    Create your own "Wolf Pack" or perhaps dub it a "Howlers & Growlers" tour when you tap-travel to BadWolf in Manassas, Wild Wolf in Nellysford and Wolf Hills in Abingdon.

    Color-code your brews blue with tastings at Blue & Gray in Fredericksburg, Blue Lab in Lexington, Blue Mountain Barrel House in Arrington and Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton.
