Basic City Beer Co. – Where Industrial History and Artisanal Craft Brewing Unite in a Scenic Haven
Within the confines of a once-thriving industrial complex, formerly home to Virginia Metalcrafter, Basic City Beer has transformed this space into a craft beer haven with a unique blend of history, artistry, and nature. The brewery’s location within this distinctive setting features towering buildings, saw-tooth roofs, a wood tap, and reclaimed pipe room tables, all paying homage to the original foundry architecture. The icing on the cake is a natural spring on-site that pumps millions of gallons of artesian water, used to craft the brewery’s exceptional beers. This refreshing brew is served across one of the largest single-pour zinc bartops in the U.S., providing an inviting atmosphere for patrons to gather and enjoy their drinks. If you prefer the outdoors, you can also unwind on cozy picnic tables amidst the scenic surroundings.
Situated on the east side of the city and nestled at the foot of the majestic mountain, Basic City Beer offers a breathtaking location for beer enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. This pet-friendly brewery boasts ample indoor and outdoor seating options, allowing you to relish your favorite brew in a setting that seamlessly marries industrial charm with natural beauty. The brewery’s decor is an ode to simplicity and elegance, and you can explore its details up close through a private tour around the showroom.
