Rising Silo Brewery, a 3 bbl brew kitchen and patio taproom, operates within a shared space that includes a working farm, Glade Road Growing, among other groups. When visiting the farm and brewery, please drive slowly and responsibly to respect wildlife, farm equipment and staff, our neighbors, and the rural area. Please leave gates as you find them and assume all fences are electrified, especially those around the animals.
The patio and bar taps are sheltered from wind and rain under a tin-roof barn. Some heat is provided by radiant, ceiling, and heat lamps over several tables. The outdoor bonfire is lit during chilly days and most evenings, weather-dependent. We recommend you dress for the weather to enjoy all the elements of our farm experience!
CRAFT BEER TASTINGS
Beverages are available in 16-oz (pint), 12-oz, and 8-oz sizes and typically range in price from $5-7. Flights of four, five, and six tastings are also available for $10, $12.50 and $15. Take your favorite beverage home by filling a 32-oz crowler can, 32-oz or 64-oz growler, or one of our flagship brews available in 16-oz cans.
Parking is limited on-site in gravel and grassy lots. Carpooling and responsible biking along Glade Road are highly encouraged modes of transportation, especially on busy Friday and Saturday nights. Please do not park for the brewery at the Heritage Park lot across the street.
RESTROOMS are available on site.
FOOD & OUTSIDE BEVERAGES
The farm kitchen, Farm and Forage, is open from 4 pm to 8:30 pm Wednesday, 11 am to 8:30 pm Thursday to Saturday, and 11 am to 7:30 pm Sunday. See the 'Dining' page here for more info., and give us a follow on Instagram for menu highlights! Outside food is not permitted. We encourage patrons to support the farm and kitchen by purchasing food on-site. Outside beverages, specifically alcoholic beverages, are not permitted by VABC law.
GROWLER FILLS & KEGS
We are happy to fill your growler with our fermented beverages by way of 32-oz or 64-oz growler. Growlers must be clean, undamaged, and are TO-GO only - they must be consumed off-premises in accordance with VABC law. Rising Silo fermented beverages are available in pony kegs and 1/2 barrel kegs for individual purchase and private event consumption. Please contact us in advance to order!
Your friendly and well-mannered canine companions are welcome to accompany you and must remain on a leash. We ask that you please pick up after your dog. Please be aware that working farm dogs do reside on the property, but are kept with the farm animals and enclosures operated by Glade Road Growing. We appreciate your understanding, and invite you to treat your pup to a spent-grain dawg treat on the house, available at the bar - woof!
We offer kombucha and ginger beer, which are fermented up to 0.5% ABV, "non-alcoholic" by VABC standards. Refreshing, carbonated water supplied from the well on the farm is available. We also offer non-fermented, house-made soda, apple cider, and coffee options.
We'd love for you to sport your favorite local brewery! Gift cards, short- and long-sleeve t-shirts, hoodies, growlers, pint glasses, hats and stickers are available for purchase on-site or online.
At this time, our Brush Mountain Blonde Ale is gluten-removed (formerly named the Leggy Blonde Ale). The kombucha, ginger beer and other non-alcoholic beverages are also gluten-free. The farm kitchen menu varies and may contain gluten-free options.
The brewery and farm kitchen accept both cash and credit/debit card payments. There is no ATM on site.
Advance reservations are not available. Please contact us if you would like to visit with a large group.
