With the growth of craft breweries, Virginia's Blue Ridge is becoming an increasingly popular destination for a beercation.
Kristen Seymour of Fit Bottomed Girls turned her recent trip to Virginia's Blue Ridge (part of a media tour hosted by Visit VBR) into a combination of beercation & outdoor adventure.
She showcased the brewery portion of her experience in a new post titled "Touring the Breweries of Virginia's Blue Ridge" on her website - Fit Bottomed Girls.
The story offers great perspective on the variety of breweries in the region, including many of the spots she visited, such as Parkway Brewing Company, Soaring Ridge Craft Brewers, Twin Creeks Brewing Co., Olde Salem Brewing Company, and a few others.
The following is an excerpt from the section about Olde Salem Brewing Company:
"Salem is probably most well-known as the home of Roanoke College, but I have a feeling they’re going to be seeing a lot more beer tourism come their way now that Olde Salem Brewing Company has claimed a spot on the main drag. An impressive remodel (which uncovered some gorgeous windows, giving the huge space fabulous lighting) created a huge, open space where beer lovers — and afficionados of fruity and sour beers in particular — can comfortably gather. They only opened in November 2017, but are already looking at creating an outdoor space and maybe even a rooftop in the future."
