The brewery slogan “Raising Ale Along The Trail” is in reference to both the Appalachian Trail and the Virginia Creeper Bike Trails that run through the town of Damascus and play an integral role in the outdoor lifestyle vibe of the town.  The brewery hosts live music every Saturday night and is a great place to meet other outdoor enthusiasts that have come to the town to kayak, mountain bike, or hike in the area.
