Backroom Brewery

150 Ridgemont Rd.
Middletown, VA 22645


About Us:

Backroom Brewery is a boutique farm brewery nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah River Valley.  We began as a herb farm, growing culinary and medicinal herbs for the garden center trade.

Our herb farm, Sunflower Cottage, grows 120,000 potted herb plants each spring from seeds and cuttings to sell to other garden centers and to our own customers.

In the fall of 2012, we built our hops field.  After all, hops are the herbs that flavor beer.  Hops provide the bitter balance to the sweet malt that feeds yeast, which ferments beer.

In 2013 we began the process of creating an ordinance in Warren County to accomodate farm breweries.  By late spring, the process was complete and Backroom Brewery became the first farm brewery in the Northern Shenandoah Valley.

Our first hop harvest in August of 2013 was bountiful.  We were brewing in small batches and planning our brewery construction.  In the spring of 2014 we began construction and finished our brewery building plus equipment installation by July of 2014.

Life is good and we are living the dream.
