There are microbreweries, and then there are a couple of fermenters and some kegging equipment. This is the latter. Fresh, good, local, inexpensive beer. The initial purchase of a growler seems pricey, but it isn't. A similar quantity of a seasonal local beer will easily cost you $25 elsewhere (e.g. three Terrapin side projects for$8 each), and here you get refills for, well, check their web site.

I've only tried three brews so far, but I'll be back for more. Their double IPA is an effervescent grapefruit of happiness. The rich oatmeal stout combines a chocolate taste with a wonderful scent. Their amber is, well, a darned good amber. I tend towards fancier brews, but the amber is a good, solid basic beer.

If you're coming through Abingdon or live nearby, check their hours or just check if anyone's there. Pick up good beer. Support local brewers.
