Nelson County VA has a wonderful beer and wine trail following Route 151 along the eastern base of the Blue Ridge mountains. For craft beer hunters, there are four major stops including Blue Mountain Brewery, Wild Wolf Brewing, Devil's Backbone Basecamp, and Blue Mountain Barrel House. Along this 31 mile trail there is also Blue Toad Pub, Bold Rock Cidery, and several wineries. I highly recommend exploring this scenic region.

When I visited Wild Wolf Brewing in summer 2012, they had recently moved a quarter mile south to a larger facility. Their impressive new complex is a collection of several wooden buildings, including a small homebrew store and gift shop. There is a large open front patio, a garden area, and a second covered patio near the bar with plenty of seating. Park in their gravel lot and follow signs to stroll back to the brewpub. Enter and turn right to go to the bar room, which has a 19 chair wooden bar, several high top tables, and overhead televisions. Behind the bar are windows looking into the brewhouse, which has mid-size stainless steel vessels staggered three rows deep. There are 10 well crafted house beers on tap, a diverse offering, and they are not afraid to experiment with special ingredients. The sampler begins with Kolsch, Pils, and Wee Heavy Scottish Brown Ale (5.7% abv). More interesting and deliciously flavorful are Weiz Wolf Hefeweizen (5.7%), Ginger Lager (7.5%), and Blonde Hunny Ale with Local Honey (6.8%). The also offer a quartet of impressive pale ales: Black Wolf India Black Ale, Double IPA (8.0%), Alpha Ale, and my favorite Wit Wolf IPA (5.0%). There are separate rooms for dining and the food menu has great variety of entrees. The service was friendly and excellently attentive. I thoroughly enjoyed this central stop along the Blue Ridge beer trail.

Wild Wolf is located near the bottom of a 12 mile stretch along Route 151 that includes three above average brewpubs / breweries (Blue Mountain, Wild Wolf and Devil’s Backbone), a beer bar (Blue Toad), a cidery and about half a dozen vineyards. The area is definitely worth a visit.

Ten beers on tap: Pilsner, Blonde, IPA, APA, Scottish Heavy, Kölsch, Hefeweizen and Imperial Stout. The APA and Imperial Stout were excellent.

We did not eat, but the menu is expanded pub fare. All of the usual favorites plus, for example, meatloaf and Jambalaya.

The operation is an eclectic mix of bar, restaurant, homebrew store and other diversions. Live music in the evenings. They are very dog friendly. Tuesdays are, “Steal the glass” days. Buy a pint and keep the glass.
