Blue Mountain Brewery

Blue Mountain Brewery

Opened in 2007 as the first brewery in Nelson County, Blue Mountain Brewery is a unique destination in the heart of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. All our ales and lagers are brewed, bottled, canned and kegged onsite in Afton or down the road in Arrington at our new Blue Mountain Barrel House. We have made our home for both facilities in beautiful, friendly Nelson County and are proud to be the pioneers of the Virginia rural brewery. Our two breweries will craft 10,000 barrels (310,000 gallons) of Virginia’s finest beer this year, made from deep well water and the best barley malt and hops the world has to offer.

Our two hop fields in Afton and a new hop yard in Arrington grow 1,000 hills of Cascade variety hops that we use year round in our Full Nelson strong pale ale, and in seasonal and harvest beer offerings. We hold medals at the World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival for our 100% brewery-grown fresh hop ale Blue Reserve, and in 2010-2011 were honored to be the only brewery in Virginia to hold back-to-back Gold medals at the Great American Beer Festival.

Blue Mountain Brewery is a proud member of the Virginia Green program. Our environmental efforts include many day-to-day activities aimed at reducing waste, recycling, and treating our brewery and restaurant effluent in an engineered water treatment facility that processes our waste stream through a recirculating wetland before returning clean water to the earth.
