Metal Craft Brewing Company is Coming to Waynesboro, Virginia
“There is no such thing as a bad beer. It’s that some taste better than others.” –Bill Carter
We’ve got Wild Wolf Brewing Company, Devils Backbone, Blue Mountain Brewery, Starr Hill Brewery, and Blue Mountain Barrel House. That’s an already great repertoire of breweries in and around Afton, Virginia, and now we get to add one more to the list. Our neighboring city of Waynesboro will soon be introducing its very first brewery located in the old Virginia Metalcrafters building in downtown Waynesboro and appropriately named Metal Craft Brewery (now called Basic City Beer Co.).
According to brothers Bart and Chris Lanman, the duo at the helm of this new establishment, their upcoming brewery will "fill the gap between two major lines of breweries: the microbreweries that populate Interstate 81 and the breweries that make up the Brew Ridge Trail." Furthermore, the Lanman brother intend to open up a tap room in Waynesboro’s former Main Street Salon, so you’ll be able to sit and enjoy a cold one (and maybe even a meal if Metal Craft follows the example of other local breweries). We look forward to this addition to the growing number of craft brewers not only near Afton, but also all across Virginia.
For the latest news about Metal Craft’s progress, check out their website and Facebook page. And of course don’t forget to reserve your room at Afton Mountain B&B, so that you have a cozy place to rest your head after a brewery outing. (We’re only a 15 minute drive from the Metal Craft location!)
