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.

We visited late afternoon on a beautiful November day and sat outside on the patio enjoying the view with our food and beer. I had the Cuban sandwich which was wonderful. On someone's recommendation, my husband had the pizza with bratwurst and apple slices. Sounds weird, but it really was very good. It's quite large and we took most of it to go and enjoyed it the next day. Goes really good with beer. Our server was very good, and I can't comment on the wait as we were in no hurry to leave.

Lots of empty tables and had 3 groups ahead of us. Waited in line for 20 minutes. It seemed the 3 behind the counter were more interested in flirting with each other. Finally a seat. Took another 20 minutes to get beers and they never showed up to get our food order. So went inside paid for our beers and left. Had friends visiting from our if town.

Visited Wild Wolf Brewing on October 25th. The food was fast and delicious. My wife ordered the baby back ribs that was cooked to perfection. I ordered the steak, mash potatoes, and mix green beans and was very tasty. Both my wife and I ordered the dry stout to go with this wonderful meal and about half way through Luke brought over a sample of the pumpkin beer to try with the dinner. I was amazed on how well the pumpkin beer paired with the spicy steak and mash potato combo. Our Waiter Luke Parker was very lively and really made our dining experience at Wild Wolf Brewing Company fun.

After dinner, we stayed and listen to a very good band and tried some more micro brews. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Good beer. Visited when also going to Devil's Backbone brewery. Definitely worth a stop in if you're touring the other breweries in the area. Some interesting tastes, but not worth the trip if not stopping elsewhere. Darker ales were good but the wait staff could have been much nicer.

We stopped here the day after attending a wedding at a winery and enjoyed the beautiful country setting and several beer flights. We ordered the roasted chicken and grilled flank steak. Delicious and reasonably priced. Lingered over our meal while people watching and then walked the grounds. Wished we had time to come back again before leaving the area.
