Roanoke Railhouse produced its first batch of Track 1 beer in 2009. It was distributed to just a few local restaurants and bars.Currently Roanoke Railhouse Brewery offers three beers; Track 1 Lager, Caboose Imperial Lager, and Railhouse IPA. After reading the Roanoke Times article I'm going to be on the look out for these beers. They are definitely on my "must-try" list.
As the brewery approaches its third year of business, sales have doubled and the brewery makes two lagers and an IPA that are distributed from Marion to Richmond and from Staunton to Raleigh, N.C.
Davidson has mostly given up his real estate practice, spending long days at the brewery to take care of everything from production schedules to working with distributors. He's hired a brewmaster trained in Germany and employs several others to help bottle and package the beer.
