Photo: From Blue Mountain Brewery
Last weekend one of my best friends from college came to visit. With this being her first visit to Charlottesville, I knew that I had to show her the gorgeous vineyards and our favorite brewery. After an afternoon of wine tasting we ended up at Blue Mountain Brewery for some afternoons beers. I love this brewery because of the beautiful scenery and delicious beers. It also doesn't hurt that they are open long after all of the vineyards close. "Blue Mountain Brewery sits in the shadow of Appalachia’s Blue Ridge Mountains in Afton, Virginia. They are a farm brewery, growing their own hops, and making a vast variety of tasty beers."
The Rockfish is their summer beer. It is an "authentic Bavarian-style “Kristall Weizen” filtered wheat beer. It has such a wonderful and light flavor. It is perfect for those hot summer days and cool spring nights. This beer is available from April to September and can be purchased at most large grocery stores - Kroger, Harris Teeter and Publix. A six pack of blue mountain bottles varies in price from roughly 8 to 10 dollars.
