We’re delighted to feature a slew of amazing craft breweries, plus cider and wine, at Rooster Walk 11!
We’re beyond thrilled to have Ballast Point back as a featured brewer at Rooster Walk 11, 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.
Our good friends at New Belgium are back at the always shaded, always popular Pine Grove Stage! You can expect a wide variety of awesome NBB beers, including some of the very rare and special Lips of Faith beers, which will be available in extremely limited supplies.
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.
“At Miller Brewing Company, we put quality above all else. We’re proud of the care that goes into the production of all of our beers and have been brewing great-tasting beers with the highest-quality ingredients since 1855. From the purity of the water we use to the highest-quality hops and malted barley, our brewmasters go to great lengths to ensure the quality and consistency of our beers. They use a very special brewing process to give Miller Lite more taste at only 96 calories per 12 oz.”
“It seems simple. Water. Yeast. Grains. Hops. That’s all it takes to make beer. But what we do with those simple ingredients within these walls is what makes us special.” Foothills began brewing beer March 2005, with three 15-barrel fermenters. The company has recently opened a new 48,000 square foot warehouse, also in Winston-Salem. Today both brewery locations continue to produce top-quality beers.
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
We’re really excited to bring Three Notch’d into the fold at RW11! You’ll be able to sample their amazing beers at the stage in the GA Campground, and they’ll have a “pop up tent” near the main stage one day during the festival.
In 1781, Jack Jouett rode 40 miles by moonlight along a backwoods trail to warn the Virginia Commonwealth’s State Legislators the British Cavalry was coming for their capture. The trail was marked by three axe notches and was known as Three Notch’d Road. Jack made his mark on history by saving several of our Founding Fathers, and we’re making ours by serving you the best craft beer made fresh in the Commonwealth. HOW WILL YOU LEAVE YOUR MARK?
We can’t say enough awesome things about Basic City Beer Co., and the terrific brews they make each day. Based in Waynesboro, Basic City will be showcasing their beers at the stage in the GA Campground all weekend, and will also have a “pop up tent” near the main stage one day during the festival.
Victorian era boomtown preprohibition industrial age Basic City no longer exists! A lost town of Virginia, our story is about reclamation of an age. The revamp of rusted beams, cracked panes and crumbling block. The artifacts of a long-gone town have our current brand. Basic City Beer Co. is repurposing the American Dream.
