V is for… Virginia

When people think about craft beer hubs in the U.S., Virginia may not immediately come to mind, but it should. Though the Virginia Craft Brewers Guild only has 25 member breweries, they pulled in a whopping 14 medals including four golds. Devils Backbone Brewing was honored with the title of Small Brewing Company of the Year after winning six medals themselves, including two gold, two silver, and two bronze.

Blue Mountain Brewing’s Co-owner and Brewer Matt Nucci represented Virginia at the Media Luncheon and spoke highly of the growth of breweries in Old Dominion. We met the crew from Hardywood Brewing, one of Virginia’s up-and-coming breweries, at Odell while on a tour and learned about their operation and their business plan for growth. A lot to be excited about right now in Virginia.
