Food, Wine & Beer Events

Cheers to Local Eats and Drinks

Events celebrating Virginia foods, wines and beers provide the perfect opportunity for you to eat and drink local. From the Whistle Belly festival, celebrating 30 vendors and 80 beers, all for a good cause: proceeds go to local non-profits and scholarships for local high school students. Save a weekend for the BIG Bluesy; a festival that highlights Blues music bands, accompanied by food trucks, craft beer, and local wine.

The exception is that a few times a year we are able to obtain a special permit which allows us to serve to you by the glass. We call these special weekends: MEAD UP.For our first MEAD UP of 2018 we are excited to be releasing a brand new limited edition mead made entirely from Virginia ingredients.

Join us as we kick off summer and our MeadUp weekend with the flavors of raspberry and passion fruit. This delicious limited run of Raspberry Passion was made with Virginia honey, raspberries from Agriberry in Hanover, VA, and passion fruit picked by our very own Kelly Kruschel at Blackwater Shores Farm in Zuni, VA. Stop in for a glass, a bottle, or even a case as this mead won't be around very long.
