The seed for Rising Silo Brewery was planted in the Autumn of 2014 at the Farm at Glade Road Growing.


Brew-creator and friend of the farm, Greg Zielske, is tending to his craft beer garden with

diligence and compassion as the conditions for growth and community building flourish.


Rising Silo Brewery is a truly unique movement for Blacksburg, and one of Southwest Virginia's only farm breweries. We boast a tap line up ranging from 10-14 beers with a brew for every palate. All beers are brewed with exclusively organic malts and water from the Farm's well. Produce from Glade Road Growing and other local farms are creatively incorporated in many of our beers and vary seasonally based on availability. 

Here you can pick up fresh veggies, dairy and meat raised on-site through Glade Road Growing and other friends of the farm,

Fill your growler or enjoy a pint on draft, Take a walkabout the farm to bask in the beauty of the New River Valley,

spark conversation or just relax in the company of friends old and new.


The brewery is currently operating with a 3-barrel brewing system on site at the farm.

We are starting small, each batch crafted with great care and attentiveness.

Come by and see us!
