Basic City Beer Company: A New Brewery!
We’re very fortunate here at Afton Mountain Bed and Breakfast to be blessed by beautiful views, a relaxed mountain pace of life, and plenty of unique dining and beverage venues. There are many local favorites when it comes to wineries, cideries, vineyards, and, of course, breweries. Blue Mountain Brewery, Wild Wolf Brewery, Devil’s Backbone, Pro Re Nata Brewery, and Seven Arrows are among the closest breweries to us.
A new business has stepped onto the scene, and we couldn’t be more excited. Basic City Beer Company opened this fall in Waynesboro, VA, ten minutes across the mountain from us. Harbored in a repurposed factory building, the beer company is a meeting of old and new, steampunk and hip. The white-washed factory turned brewery is in the district of Waynesboro, formerly a separate township which consolidated with Waynesboro in the early 1920s, called Basic City. Hence the name!
Their beers range from the “Foggy Lager – An unfiltered lager crafted with noble hops,” “The 6th Lord-IPA—this IPA’s character is from Scottish yeast & the true American character of aroma hops, minimal bitter,” to the “B.T.R. Stout—the dark color of this ale lifts lightly off the palate,” with a few others in between.
Basic City is bulking up their weekend events too, featuring local bands on Fridays and Saturday nights—Chamomile and Whiskey, Bryan Elijah Smith & the Wild Hearts, Sun-dried Opossum, The Judy Chops all play within the next two weeks!
Come stay with us and explore new tastes and local flavor at Afton Mountain Bed and Breakfast.
