A new Brew in Town – Great Valley Farm Brewery
August 1, 2016
Great Valley Farm Brewery, located in Natural Bridge, VA will be opening its doors to thirsty visitors in fall 2016. With breath-taking views, this new brewery is a perfect stop after making family memories visiting the sites in Rockbridge County. The nearby attractions include the Virginia Safari Park (right next door), Natural Bridge and Caverns and historic Lexington. Specializing in small batches of high-quality beers using select ingredients from their own on-site farm, Great Valley Farm Brewery will soon become one of your favorite brewery destinations.
The Shenandoah Valley is already a beer lover’s destination, but the addition of Great Valley Farm Brewery brings something different. Owners Nathan and Irma Bailey have an intense passion for quality beer and wanted to share that passion with others. Their dream is now a reality at Great Valley Farm Brewery, which has its own on-site vineyard, hop plantings, fruit and herb gardens.
The Baileys purchased the land for Great Valley Farm Brewery in 2008. They planted the first portion of their vineyard in 2012 and plan to add wine production and sales in the future. With the addition of hops, fruits, and herbs grown on-site, the Bailey’s are able to create endless flavor combinations. Owner Nathan Bailey says, “Our core focus will be on creating beers in the Belgian Farmhouse tradition, as well as other Belgian styles. However, we will rotate through a number of different beer styles throughout the year and will have something for everyone.”
Bring your family (kids are very welcome), friends and a picnic to celebrate beer and the beautiful views of the Shenandoah. We hope to see you at Great Valley Farm Brewery soon!
