THE NEXT PHASE OF BLUE MOUNTAIN
By 2011, Blue Mountain beer was in demand across Virginia at a rate that exceeded our capacity at the original Blue Mountain location in Afton. The next evolution for us became Blue Mountain Barrel House, a larger production-minded facility with almost tenfold capacity of our brewery in Afton. But just building a bigger brewery seemed a bit boring. So we did things our way: first, we picked a 15-acre spot in the south of Nelson County that has the stunning mountain views to match our Afton location. As the most mountainous county in America east of the Mississippi, the stark line of the Blue Ridge is woven into the fabric of our inspiration. Next, we designed a facility that had special capabilities to produce the barrel-aged beers we hang our hat on, beers like Dark Hollow. With a unique brewhouse and a fluctuating temperature-controlled barrel aging room, Blue Mountain Barrel House operates one of the largest barrel-aging facilities on the east coast.
In Fall 2020, we diversified the Barrel House facility by opening THE SMOKIN’ BARREL RESTAURANT, with expanded onsite seating, a permanent commercial kitchen, a beautiful stage, and expansive patios. The Smokin’ Barrel offers our delicious house-smoked meats and American pub fare favorites to please every palate, along with a variety of wine and cider options. Join us on the quiet side of Nelson County between Charlottesville and Lynchburg and relax in the very special setting of Blue Mountain Barrel House.
