Craft beer is very popular, and the number of farm breweries are increasing across the Commonwealth of Virginia. Starting a farm brewery could become an alternative source of income for our local farmers. Breweries can be a major tourist attraction by drawing visitors from outside the County.
A farm brewery is an exciting idea! But, there are steps to be taken before it becomes operational and the doors open to the public.
