Hikes, Bikes & Brews

by Casey | Posted on August 29th, 2013

Many of Virginia’s craft breweries happen to be located near great hiking and biking trails. Head out with the ones you love, then come back and settle in for an ice cold beverage and great local hospitality.

The Virginia Creeper Trail

On the western end of the trail, in Abingdon, visit Wolf Hills Brewing Company. To the east and in the middle of the trail sits The Damascus Brewery in none other than Damascus.

The Virginia Capital Trail

Bridging the Colonial Capital to today’s Richmond Capital, the “Cap to Cap” runs near Route 5 from Richmond to Williamsburg and you can find these breweries not too far off the beaten path.

Mount Vernon Trail

This trail runs from George Washington’s Mount Vernon, along the Potomac River north to Arlington. Concentrate on the Alexandria to Arlington portions  of the trail and find that there are four breweries not too far away.

Washington &  Old Dominion Trail

Also in Arlington, if you venture along the W&OD Trail the 44.5 miles to Purcellville, you could encounter six breweries without veering too far out of the way.
