The entire city of Fredericksburg is steeped in Civil War nostalgia. Indeed, the names of this bar, the associated brewery and most of its beers are Civil War themed. Lee's Retreat is located in the Bowman Center industrial park, which has red brick and painted cinder block buildings. Drive back into the complex, cross the railroad tracks, turn left and cross the tracks again. Look for a sign to turn right, and park in the lot in front of the bar. Lee's has a small patio area out front with black patio furniture. Inside on the left is the host stand, where there is a refrigerator case for bomber and growler sales. Ahead are plenty of dining tables and along the far back wall is their 10 chair wooden bar. Grey cinder block walls give an industrial atmosphere, but the service and ambience is warm. Lee's Retreat is the brewpub for Blue and Gray Brewery which is just next door. The design of the building is such that the bar area and brewhouse room are divided by a wall with large windows. The brewhouse has midsize 25bbl stainless steel brewing vessels and a row of several midsize stainless steel fermenters. The quality of the beer from this 5 year old brewery is mature and enjoyable. Lee's offers about 6 beers on tap and 22oz bottles from the brewery. The food menu includes a great variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and a few entrees. My fried shrimp appetizer was delicious. Nice little place.
