©2011 The Afton Group, LLC : Taylor Smack, co-founder, owner and head brewer at Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton, VA looks over the beginnings of a 5000 sq foot expansion that's underway. It will join the existing original building in the background built in 2007.

Nelson County, Virginia

We first told you back in December 2010 about a major expansion on the way for Nelson’s first microbrewery, Blue Mountain, established back in 2007. Has it already been that long? Yep, sure has! “It’s about a 5000 square foot customer sized addition, so it will basically be bigger than what we have now. More customer space, offices, cathedral ceilings, same farm house style with the gabled roofs. Virginia Frame’s doing it again,” Taylor says.

Construction crews began work this week on the major expansion at Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton. Not to worry, the doors are open while everything is underway.

The new construction is ongoing while the brewery and restaurant operate normally. The addition will go off to the right of the original building.

The project will be completed in the fall of this year, just in time for the beautiful autumn leaves and cool weather!

Woo Hoo!
