Charlottesville and a Beer Tour

This past weekend, I had the chance to go to Charlottesville, Virginia to visit one of my best friends.  While it was only a short visit, we jam-packed as much as we could into the day and a half I was there.  This included going on a tour of some local breweries with a group of friends.

We visited three breweries, tasted lots of beer, and enjoyed some really gorgeous weather.  There is nothing like sitting outside on a nice day and enjoying good food, drink and company.  ♥

First stop, Devils Backbone Brewing Company.  Not only did we taste some good beer here but we also had a lovely alfresco lunch.

Next stop, Blue Mountain Brewery.  We had beers and snacks out on the patio under a beautiful pergola with the mountains surrounding us.  It was fabulous.

Last stop, Starr Hill Brewery.  Probably the most well-known brewery out of the three that we visited.  It had a very cool, hip vibe and you have to love free beer samples.  :)

“A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it’s better to be thoroughly sure.” ~ Czech proverb.  :)

Cheers!
