Blue Mountain Brewery had a great selection of beers and we ordered the sampler of their beers. The building was great, nicely decorated with a small lounge area with sofas to relax and have a cold beer. There was also patio seating and a great menu for food.
We choose the cheese plate to eat with our beer, there was a mix of fresh fruit, bread, and unusual cheeses that were amazing. One of the cheese was a mustard cheese, never had it before but really enjoyed it.
Next, we traveled to Devils Backbone Brewing Company in Roseland VA. Wow, what a place. The building alone wasvery impressive, a stone and wooden structure. Equally impressive was the beer which is produced on-site! We ordered the 10 beer sampler and were delighted with the choice of beer offered by the brewery. I enjoy Hefeweizen and the Wintergreen Weiss (a Bavarian-style Hefeweizen) was much to my liking.
After finishing our sampling, we were escorted to our table table on the patio, where we had a great view of the mountains at sunset and the man-made koi pond. The food selection is comfort gourmet food.
A great mix of high quality and comfort. Everything looked great and inviting. Several members of our party got the fish tacos, some got the Veggie Burger, I opted for the meatloaf and garlic mashed potatoes. Based upon the lack of conversation while eating, I would say everyone enjoyed their food.
What a great night we had! This week I also learned a new brewery is being built in the same area. So now we will have three to choose from and I haven’t even mentioned the wineries in the area.
- Meatloaf and Garlic Mashed!
