The craft beer scene in the Roanoke Valley in Virginia’s Blue Ridge keeps getting bigger and better!
The latest addition for beer lovers in the new Deschutes Brewery Tasting Room in Downtown Roanoke.
The new facility opened Monday, August 28th, and is part of Oregon-based Deschutes Brewery’s transition into making Roanoke its second home and the site of its East Coast distribution facility.
In addition to distributing beer to local restaurants and retailers, hosting tap takeovers and other special events, Deschutes Brewery will now offer locals and visitors the opportunity to experience more of its unique craft beer culture with a visit to the tasting room.
The space is located on Downtown Roanoke’s historic Market Street and features indoor and outdoor seating, a beautiful bar area, and a retail area where Deschutes Brewery merchandise will be available for purchase, including shirts, hats, bike jerseys, pints, growlers, and other great swag.
Beer will be produced on location in the 20-gallon brew house and the bar has 24 taps that will serve Deschutes Brewery beer, and the company also looks forward to collaborating with other local breweries in Virginia’s Blue Ridge to come up with creative specialty brews that you can only find at this location.
You’ll also be able to enjoy many of the classic beers that have made Deschutes Brewery one of the most popular craft breweries in the United States, such as the Black Butte Porter, Fresh Squeezed IPA, Inversion IPA, Pacific Wonderland Lager, and Nitro Obsidian Stout.
Here are a few other details to help you plan your visit.
