Damascus Brewery is a small independent “craft brewery” or “microbrewery” located in Southwestern Virginia in the town of Damascus. Damascus Brewery is the first microbrewery for our town. Microbreweries (also known as craft breweries) are designated based on the overall scale of the operations, including the size of their individual batches.
Craft breweries are becoming more and more popular in the United States. The Brewers Association report that as of 2013 there were a total of 2,416 U.S. breweries, with 2,360 considered craft breweries. Each of these microbreweries has something unique to offer, and Damascus Brewery is no exception.
Adam Woodson, who used to be a rock climbing instructor in Roanoke area, has been involved with homebrewing since 2001, having started while attending RadfordUniversity. After graduating, Adam worked in the biotech and chemistry related industry before relocating to the town of Damascus. As the owner and brewmaster of Damascus Brewery, he describes his unique use of yeast starters which is why his beer is so tasty.
Presently Damascus Brewery presently creates ten types of beers: OMG Light, Reason Irish Stout, Amberdelic Amber Ale, Bimbo Blonde Ale, FunBerry, Bourbon Porter, Bazinga, Butterfly, Patagonia, and Beaver Rage IPA.
The interior of the brewery is still being developed and is growing with its popularity. What is finished is the handmade bartop, the focal point of the brewery. The wood inlay features the Brewery logo and mascot — a beer toting beaver — as well as an inset of a saw mill blade from Tripplett’s Saw Mill, previously located where the Damascus Food City now resides.
You can go to Damascus Brewery to find the beer of your choice, whether your preference is smooth, rich, dark, creamy, or stout. Damascus Brewery has a handcrafted beer you will love. Ask us about coordinating a brewery tour and tasting.
