    Virginia’s Howlers and Growlers

    by Casey | Posted on August 15th, 2013

    What better time than August Virginia Craft Beer Month to create your own beer tour? Step back and evaluate the names of Virginia’s craft breweries and you see a trend or two start to emerge. The first is animals that howl, and the second … well, the second will be a second blog post. Watch for it!

    Wild Wolf Brewing Company

    Wild Wolf Brewing Company

    Tap travel across Virginia to hit the howlers of Virginia brews. From north to south, here’s your unofficial Virginia Howlers and Growlers Craft Beer Tour:

    Manassas: BadWolf Brewing Company. Sarah Meyers, co-founder of BadWolf, first officially announced her and husband Jeremy’s plan for a nanobrewery in Manassas in September 2012. She has kept faithful craft beer lovers in the loop with licensing and legislation, the tap room build-out and much more, but there’s one thing she’s not telling. Don’t ask Sarah how she and Jeremy came up with the name BadWolf. “I’m sorry to disappoint you but we want to keep it a secret how we decided on BadWolf. That’s for you to figure out!” Guess you’d better head that way and sample one of the six brews on tap to find clues. BadWolf Brewing Company

    Ruckersville: Beer Hound Brewery. Sniffing out good beer? You might fall in love with Beer Hound, a nanobrewery that opened in 2012. All of their beers are named after famous hounds of history and Hollywood. Try Archie, Duke, Kujo or Old Yella, for starters.

    Nellysford: Wild Wolf Brewing Company. This brewery, restaurant, sports bar and shopping village gets its name from brewmaster Danny Wolf, who was trained at America’s oldest brewing school. Sample or take home a growler of Alpha Ale, White Wolf or Howling Pumpkin, the fall beer that blends molasses and pumpkin pie spice into a well-balanced brew.

    Blue Lab Brewing Company logoLexington: Blue Lab Brewing Company. A microbrewery in historic downtown Lexington? Yes indeed. Sample the beers on tap and take home a growler or keg.

    Abingdon: Wolf Hills Brewing Company. Daniel Boone trekked the mountains and valleys along the Great Road and into the Wilderness — today’s Abingdon. It was on this southern end of the Great Road that Boone’s dogs encountered a wolf pack from a nearby cave. That one sleepless night lives on in legend, and now, in name as Wolf Hills Brewing Company. Visit the Wolf Den Tasting Room from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays or Thursdays, affectionately dubbed “Growler Hours,” to enjoy small-batch brews.
