SALEM, Va. (WFXR)—Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine named Parkway Brewing in Salem as a top post-adventurer thirst quencher.
The magazine based the brewery’s location as a main factor toward its placement on this list. Roanoke’s 12,700-acre Carvins Cove Natural Reserve is located minutes from I-81 and about 10 miles from downtown Salem. The cove is home to an 80-mile trail system that centers around a 630-acre reservoir and the 2,500-plus-foot peaks of Tinker and Brushy Mountain.
The magazine calls the brewery a “gem of a watering hole” sitting right on the Roanoke Valley Greenway. They also state it has one of the coolest outdoor patios and beer gardens in the Blue Ridge area.
“Weekend visitors can expect top local bands, food trucks, and a rotating menu of 20 seasonal and staple brews,” reads the magazine on Parkway Brewery. “Craft connoisseurs will delight in Parkway’s recently installed pilot brewing system, which brings innovative small-batch beers like Mexican mole stouts, Lupulin powder IPAs, and fruited kettle sours.”
Since opening in 2013 on Kessler Mill Road, the Parkway Brewing Company has not only created some of the state’s tastiest beers, but they have created a place that has brought together a community of like-minded, free-spirited beer lovers with a bond over the outdoors.
