Do you love craft beer, or perhaps you are just marrying beer geek? Whatever the reason, what better way to celebrate your two loves than by hosting a brewery wedding.
During a recent Reddit search, this morning we happened upon a post about a couple trying to plan a brewery wedding in Virginia and they were searching for brewery wedding venues. They reached out the Virginia Craft Brewers Guild, VA Craft Beer and Virginia Tourism in their pursuit of finding the perfect wedding venue to celebrate wedding vows and a love of craft beer and they were met with little advice on places to host a brewery wedding.
If this sounds like you, then look no further. Stable Craft Brewing at Hermitage Hill Farm is the perfect place to host your vows and celebrate your love of beer. In fact, we were named “Top Wedding Venue in the US for Brewery Weddings” by Craftbeer.com
