Come visit the production facility for Nelson County’s original brewery, Blue Mountain Brewery. Opened in 2012 to supplement the growing demand of our original brewery restaurant on Route 151 in Afton, our strikingly beautiful “Blue Mountain Barrel House” location boasts mountain views to rival anything this side of the Mississippi as well as one of the largest beer barrel-aging facilities on the East Coast.

In Fall 2020, we diversified the Barrel House facility by opening THE SMOKIN’ BARREL RESTAURANT, with expanded onsite seating, a permanent commercial kitchen, a beautiful stage, and expansive patios. The Smokin’ Barrel offers our delicious house-smoked meats and American pub fare favorites to please every palate, along with a variety of wine and cider options. Join us on the quiet side of Nelson County between Charlottesville and Lynchburg and relax in the very special setting of Blue Mountain Barrel House.

Come visit us 7 days a week at Blue Mountain Barrel House and get an inside view on how we continue to lead the craft beer revolution in Virginia!
