Charlottesville Beer Trail

The Washington Post today has a nice article on four Charlottesville-area breweries. Writer Jenny Mayo and boyfriend Mike, who blogs at DC Beer, spent two days exploring the Charlottesville beer trail. They visited Starr Hill, South Street, Blue Mountain, and Devils Backbone breweries. The couple completed their research by enjoying the beer samplers provided at each stop. This is a trip I'd like to replicate soon. 

I first wrote about the Charlottesville Beer Trail last year.
See the Washington Post article, Virginia Is Also for Beer Lovers, here.


  1. So after my trip through the North East last week visiting various brew pubs my friend and I are looking for another trip like that. I am thinking maybe a Beer Trail through the mountains might not be a bad idea.

  2. That little route 151 is quite impressive indeed. Blue Mountain and Devil's Backbone are 13 miles apart. 4 miles or so from DBBC between the two is the best mead I've ever tried and some damn good fruit wines (Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery). And there are 3 or 4 conventional wineries as well.
