We’re delighted to feature a slew of amazing craft breweries, plus cider and wine, at Rooster Walk 10!
We’re beyond thrilled to announce that Ballast Point will be a featured brewer at Rooster Walk 10, sponsoring the Ballast Point Lake Stage at Pop’s Farm!!! Ballast Point has recently added an East Coast location in Roanoke, and we’re stoked to have them as part of the RW Family! For Ballast Point beers, it begins with the search of flavor. The perfect balance of taste and aroma. An obsession with ingredients. An exploration of techniques. And while we savor the result, we’re just as fascinated by the process to get there. What started as a small group of home brewers, who simply wanted to make a better beer, evolved into the adventurers known today as Ballast Point.
Some of the Ballast Point beers you can expect at RW10 include: Grapefruit Sculpin, Longfin Lager, Sculpin, Wahoo White, Mango Even Keel, Tart Peach Kolsch, Bonito Blonde Ale, Fathom IPA, Aloha Sculpin.

From our earliest days of striving to make consistently good beer, and instead making beer that ranged from vile, to barely drinkable, to wonderful, to elegant, to questionable-at-best. From being castigated by our West Marin neighbors to finally suffering an ‘eviction’ by our West Marin septic system. From landing in the welcoming arms of Petaluma, and actually getting our beer into bottles, onto the streets, and into the hands of sympathetic beer geeks, to steadily losing less money each month. From all this and more, Lagunitas Brewing Company is emerging as a battle-tested brewery capable of making great beer out of goat’s milk, brambles, and asphalt on the surface of the Moon, if need be.
Some of the Lagunitas beers you can expect at RW10: IPA, Lil Sumpin’, Sumpin’ Easy, Twelfth of Never, Citrus Sinensis Blood Orange IPA, Aunt Sally Plum Gose, Aunt Sally Pineapple.

Our approach to cidermaking is straightforward. Experiment; learn by doing, reading, and engaging with the beer, cider, and winemaking communities; use local apples, products and services; love the place we live; support the charities and people that support our community; keep it fresh; keep it funky. We take cidermaking seriously, we don’t take ourselves seriously. Based in Free Union, Virginia, just outside of Charlottesville, we are in the heart of apple country at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. All of our ciders start with locally-grown fruit, cultivated with care and harvested at peak flavor from nearby orchards and family farms.
Some of the Potter’s Craft Ciders you can expect at RW10: Farmhouse Hops and Grapefruit Hibiscus.
Buskey Cider opened in April 2016 in the popular craft beverage neighborhood of Scott’s Addition in Richmond, Virginia. Focusing on semi-sweet and dryer ciders in addition to using innovative techniques typically found in beer, wine and bourbon, From the moment we opened our doors and cider started flowing, we’ve been blown away by the awesome support we’ve enjoyed as experienced and first time cider drinkers alike became regulars and helped us develop our unique approach to cidermaking. Buskey is currently distributing on draft and in cans in Richmond through Loveland Distributing, through Blue Ridge Beverage for territory ranging from Charlottesville to Harrisionburg to Lynchburg to Waynesboro to Farmville, and in Hampton Roads through Chesbay. #GetBuskey
