Bryant’s is formally announcing the opening of its Farm Brewery on November 20th 2021, located at 3224 E. Branch Loop in Roseland VA.

Bryant’s, the makers of the cult favorite, Unicorn Fuel Hard Cider, is expanding into brewing beer on its sprawling 380 acre farm with an opening date of November 20th. Jerry Thornton the owner and brewer completed the University of Richmond’s craft brewing program in 2019 and has dabbled in brewing prior to founding the Bryant’s Cider. 

“Adding beer to the mix will not only give our customers more options, it will allow us to attract and expose more people to our historic farm” says Thornton. “We have the most unique and authentic experience in Nelson County, with multiple spaces for friends and families to enjoy the day. Being on a working orchard farm, our “core” competency is hard cider, but sometimes you just want a beer” Thornton says. 

Bryant’s Brewing will be launching with two beers on November 20th. Roseland Wheat, a light hoppy American wheat beer made with sweet orange peel. Kala’s Brown Ale, a malty brown ale with a smooth finish. Additional taps will be rolling out in the weeks following including an Imperial Stout, a hazy DIPA, and a Galaxy Hop SMASH beer made with farm grown Hops. Details can be found at
