This was our second visit to Wild Wolf Brewing and we were pleased once again with the food, beer and service. The bartenders are friendly and the food is obtained from local purveyors and prepared well. The fish tacos and jambalaya were great. We will come back again, once we are in this area.

Wild Wolf used to be one of the best places to eat in Nelson County. I usually preferred it to Devil's Backbone, because it was a nice atmosphere and less crowded and noisy. Over the years, however, the quality of the food has decreased, and though I can't speak for the beer, the food is fairly mediocre for the price... More

Came here to try the beer and have some dinner. Great place that I'd like to come back and try in the summer, when you can sit outside and enjoy the country. Husband and I ordered a flight of beer to share and it was more than enough. The beers are all pretty light and I'm into the darker stuff... More

I had the chicken fingers with Thai chili sauce and they where excellent. Not you average chicken fingers. Great beer selection, my favs where Saison of Love and Blonde Honey.

The Risotto Fritters was disappointing, the Goat Cheese flavor did not come through. They were way to similar to hush puppies.

The restaurant has a very comfortable, down home ambiance, and the very friendly staff helps make you feel right at home throughout your meal. The food is delicious and there's plenty of it, at a reasonable price. They have a great selection of beers, and you can even ask to taste what's on tap before you buy it. This is... More

We prefer this over Devil's Back Bone. The space here is much better, we enjoyed live music while we are, the serrice is exceptionally personal and attentive and the food is fresh and very well flavored. If you have time for just one brewery along Route 151, choose Wild Wolf.

Description
Wild Wolf Brewing Company, established November 11, 2011, is one of just a few mother/son operations in the country. Danny, a classically trained Brewmaster by the Siebel Institute in Chicago, and his mom, a business savvy entrepreneur, have turned a family passion for craft beer into one of the fastest growing breweries in Virginia. The brewery and restaurant is situated in the heart of the Brew Ridge Trail and features a wide selection of hand-crafted beers as well as the freshest local foods in Central Virginia-all in a century old, revitalized Nelson County school house. The ten acre property features an authentic Biergarten, shaded by a protective canopy of 60-year-old Siberian Elms, including a charming gazebo, large Koi pond, and working water wheel. In addition, an outdoor pavilion has been enclosed to allow for a four season dining experience. The pavilion hosts live music every weekend year round. Inside the restaurant, guests are treated to a rustic dining experience, including wrap-around porches that provide stunning views of the surrounding mountains and property. Toward the back of the old schoolhouse guests enter the new building which houses a lively sports bar as well as our brewing facility.
