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.


The brewpub is open 7 days a week serving lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch.  Walk on over for a meal or a pint, or pick up a 6 pack to take back to the Inn!  We’ll also cater meals and provide take-out picnics, pizzas, and other goodies to go.  Ask our event manager for details.
