Our Perspective
Spotlight on New Business: Stable Craft Brewing
Cheers to the opening of Stable Craft Brewing at Hermitage Hill Farm & Stables! First, Hermitage Hill Farm & Stables - a premier event venue in a pristine rural landscape and now, Stable Craft - a true farm brewery honoring the agricultural background of Augusta County and the Shenandoah Valley. From hop production to animal spent-grain consumption to the purchase of local honey and pumpkins, Stable Craft has made a clear commitment to growing, buying, using and producing all things "local."
This project will be a true farm brewery:
  • Production of 16 different beers
  • Cows will consume spent grain
  • Vegetable gardens, horses and chickens on-site
  • Expanding hop yard
  • Farm store
  • Pub-style food served out of a food truck
As you've hopefully heard, Augusta County, alongside Staunton, Waynesboro, Harrisonburg and Lexington/Rockbridge recently premiered Shenandoah Beerwerks, a trail showcasing the quality beer produced in the central Shenandoah Valley. Stable Craft is featured along the Beerwerks Trail, and we're excited for locals and visitors to experience an authentic farm brewery from top-to-bottom along the trail.
