What a Fabulous stop in between wineries in Central Virginia! Great views and a Wonderful social stop to take in a beer or 2. My wife and I are Belgian beer lovers and they had a variety of beers from light to dark that are very symbolic of a top microbrewery. As the added bonus you can bring your own food!

This is a gem of a find! Virginia's first historic farm brewery produces beer that is so delicious -- lagers, ales, porters and stouts. The brewmaster and his team are so talented...and the venue is an absolute treat. Rolling hills with views of the neighboring cattle leisurely roaming the fields. The combination of great beer and great scenery will have you hanging out for hours, and coming back often. Super family- and pet-friendly!

Stopped here on our way back to town and was pleasantly surprised. The views are beautiful and the tasting room was well down. It was a busy Saturday, and i was surprised at how quiet the room stayed. Most breweries get too loud when they're busy, but not this one. They had quite a selection of beers, something for all taste buds. Will definitely visit again!

Call ahead and try and get the brewer to meet you and talk through his process - astounding! Really a connoisseur of flavors. Don't be put off by thinking you don't like IPAs or won't drink a stout ... give it a try! Not much else in the immediate area, so bring a picnic, or eat before you get there, or bring a frisbee and a deck of cards to hang out.

Bald top is fun for everyone! Bring your friends, kids or dogs. There is a wide assortment of seasonally changing one of a kind beers brewed on site. Usually a food truck and live music on the weekends. Well behaved pets welcome. Lots of room for kids to run around and play. Plenty of seating inside and out when the weather is nice. Check out the Facebook page or website for updates on events and happenings...it seems like there’s always something fun going on. A much needed hang out in the Madison area and a convenient destination for those traveling from Charlottesville, DC or SNP.
