This was my first visit to Charlottesville, Virginia, so I was up for anything that involved trying out the local Craft Beer scene. I only had 2-hours and lots of ground to cover. I stopped at a gas station and asked some locals where I should head. More than a few of the patrons suggested South Street Brewery (Map) as a great one stop shop, so I jumped back in the car and we were off. Needless to say, I was not disappointed.
We passed through Roanoke Valley on our way back to Charlotte after our week long Virginia Brewery trek. Along the way folks told us we could leave Virginia with at least popping by the Parkway Brewing Company at 739 Kessler Mill Rd in Salem, VA. We had already visited half a dozen or so breweries that day and Parkway wasn’t so far off the beaten path to cause any consternation. So we twisted our arms and took a detour to check it out.
