Nelson County, Virginia
Nine years ago today on October 24, 2007 Nelson County, Virginia’s first microbrewery opened its doors. Blue Mountain Brewery opened the first location in Afton, Virginia right along Route 151 where it still operates today.
Since first opening in 2007, the original location underwent a major expansion back in 2010.
In October of 2011 they broke ground on their now operating Blue Mountain Barrel House.
And just two years ago in late 2014 they completed the purchase, renovation, and opening of South Street Brewery in downtown Charlottesville.
It’s been quite a ride and it keeps going!
Glad we were there to see it from the start!
Congrats guys & Happy Birthday!
