Press release after the jump. I’m just happy they’re going to keep making awesome beer.
Today is the release of our tasty Lights Out Holiday Ale. Available on draft & in six-packs here at the brewery. Today is also the first Thursday of the month which means it is Steal the Glass day, all day long. Buy a beer for $5 and you keep the logo glass it comes in, no limit on glass purchases.
Itâ€™s been a busy week already for the folks at Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton. They have been in the process of offloading a new tank that will double their draft and bottled beer distribution in stores and restaurants. â€œWe just recently got to the momentous mark of having our draft and bottled beer in over 100 restaurants and stores across Virginia. This new tank is going to help us double that within a year,â€ Mandi Smack, co-owner of BMB tells us.
I have made no secret about my appreciation for this beer; friends from around the state and country are jealous that this brewery is only 12 minutes from Downtown Crozet (and my house)!
Hopefully you’ve been to Blue Mountain Brewery – 12-13 minutes west of Crozet in Afton.
Could this dream come to fruition? (from the C-Ville article)
Devilâ€™sâ€™ General Manager Chris Trotter tells us that Crandall and friends granted a portion of the site back to Nelson County for the possible purpose of building a skate park. â€œThe plan is to make this area the Virginia Jackson Hole,â€ says Trotter, who is referring, of course, to Ã¼ber cool resort town Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which is beloved almost as much for its dining, entertaining and non-skiing recreations as it is for its amazing slopes and powder.
