We enjoyed a lovely date night on the patio on a warm fall evening. The view really complimented the food, beer and service. All were excellent! It was "steal the glass" night, which was an added bonus. I now see why the guys like to go there after work or for any of their work parties. My burger was exceptional.

We were in town for the announcement of Denver for Governor at Silverback Distillery. After Denver's speech, our group had worked up an appetite. My husband and I had been to Blue Mountain before and had enjoyed our meal, plus the beer tastings. The Cuban was great. The hamburger was cooked perfectly. The Reuben was also spot on. Our group...

We stopped in for an early dinner and I was surprised how busy it was. We were seated immediately and our server was great. I tried the pizza (recommended by a friend who visited in the fall) and was not disappointed. We also tried the flight of beers to have a sample of all available. Their outdoor area is pet... More

My friends and I have come here many, many times. I've watched Blue Mountain grow from a very small sort of tasting room to its current almost theme-park worthy facility. The situation is lovely with beautiful west-facing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains; in fair weather there is lots of outdoor seating, and there's a heated tent or even table... More

Our family had a fun night at the brewery! It was amazing how I could see beer tank while sitting down. The food was so good it was the perfect flavor. I would recommend it to the whole family.

Stopped into Blue Mountain Brewery for lunch while visting the Charlottesville area for business. (In Afton actually to visit a nearby winery.) While I only enjoyed ONE, the beer is excellent. Great place for lunch, especially if you can sit on the patio and enjoy the view. Reasonable prices. Good food. OK service.

The location of this brewery is outstanding. I wish it hadn't been so cold because their outdoor seating and fire pit area would have been incredible at sunset. What a view! The inside of the brewery didn't blow me away as far as ambiance and service was ok. We had a couple tasters of beer and went on our way.

We love this place! The beer is incredible - especially the hopwork orange. We love their pizza and nachos. Only at this visit our nachos were cold and soggy when they arrived. Hopefully this was an anamoly as other times the food has been fantastic as well. Great view and service!

5 adults stopping for a late lunch and beer on 12/26/16. Having never been to this establishment, I was surprised by the amount of patrons. It was busy however we were seated within 5 mins of arriving. For lunch, between the 5 of us, we had the nachos, pretzels, wings, brat, and the AM Fog Mushroom & Swiss burger. Coming... More

I love just about everything about this brewery. We came in right behind a beer-tasting tour, and they were still able to seat us immediately. The service was excellent. I had a duck BLT that was absolutely incredible. My wife had a chicken Caesar salad that was good, although the chicken was a bit dry. We shared a HUGE pretzel... More
