August 9, 2023

If you’re searching for a memorable brewery experience, then you’ll want to visit Central Virginia’s Stable Craft Brewing, a 20-acre, award-winning destination farm brewery.  Here’s a list of six reasons why you’ll love your visit to Stable Craft Brewing:

1.   Delicious Beer & Cider

We pride ourselves on making craft beers & ciders that make repeatedly visiting our brewery worth the trip. Great beverages that you can’t find anywhere else are the focal point of the Stable Craft experience. We specialize in producing high-quality beers, ciders, and sodas for every taste because we know those are the start to creating great memories!

2.   Bistro Food You Rarely Find at Other Breweries

Though great craft beverages are the essence of the Stable Craft brand, we understand that tasty food matters and plays a big part in the overall experience.  While our well-known reuben and smash burgers are always great beer food, your  tastebuds will be excited to see bistro specialties like braised lamb with locally sourced meat from Ridgeview Acres or skillet-style entrees that feature steak, grilled chicken, or sauteed shrimp. Our staff are always happy to offer beer & cider suggestions to pair with your food as well.

3.   Knowledgeable & Passionate Staff

At Stable Craft, we understand how important informed and enthusiastic staff are for creating a memorable experience. Our dedicated bar staff take the time to describe the variety of beers & ciders on tap while embodying the passion our brewers share for the craft beverages that they brew.

4.   Convenient Onsite Lodging

Stable Craft Brewing’s unique atmosphere and ambience make it the perfect destination for overnight stays. Reserve one of our guest suites and enjoy your own private space, hot tub, and fireplace with a walkable distance to our taproom. We are conveniently located 15 minutes from Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway; local attractions include national parks, caverns, antique shops, and art galleries. Relax and rejuvenate in the Blue Ridge Mountains while enjoying a beercation!

5.    Sustainable Practices

Stable Craft Brewery originally started as an operational horse farm, so we care deeply about sustainability and green practices! Some of these include growing fresh herbs for our kitchen, planting over 1,000 trees and shrubs on the property, growing our own hops, zero-food waste composting with the bokashi method, donating our spent grain from brewing to local farmers for cattle feed, and practicing water reclamation. Stable Craft Brewing offers unique brewery tours where you can learn all about our many sustainable initiatives that led to us being named Virginia’s Green Brewery of the Year, three years in a row.

6.     4-Season Destination

Stable Craft Brewing is open year-round and each season features its own distinct virtues, flavors and atmosphere! Spring is the perfect time to check out the fresh hop fields and peach orchard while tasting the fresh seasonal flavors of our bistro-style menu. Listen to live outdoor music and enjoy weekly cider releases throughout the summer! Stroll around the farm and revel in autumn’s beautiful foliage as you grab a pint and visit the ponies or challenge your friends to a round of cornhole golf. Rent an Igloo with a private server during the winter to experience all of the benefits of outdoor dining without any of the drawbacks! 

Create amazing memories at Stable Craft throughout the year, no matter the season. We look forward to seeing you!
