Breweries with the highest beer rating in Virginia

(STACKER) – In a world where only a small number of large companies dominate the beer market, absorbing a brew created near home can be even more fun.

The last decade has seen an explosion of breweries operating on a smaller scale and offering a wider and sometimes more experimental selection of beers. Although craft beer often has a higher price than your average domestic beer, consumers are clearly willing to pay more: in 2020, craft beer accounted for nearly a quarter of the U.S. retail beer market.
