Dan brews award winning home crafted ales and enjoys teaching you to do the same.
"I brew in my barn every week, and if you want to learn…come join me." Dan has spent years perfecting his award winning brews…Chai-Laxin and Dark Matter IPA and he is always eager to share his brew techniques with you. He has retired from his day job and WildManDan Brewery is officially the smallest production brewery in Virginia. Really. Great. Small Batch. Beer.
With 30 years of restaurant and hotel management experience, she is a wild woman who loves the passionate crazies she meets in the hospitality industry…co-workers, customers, vendors, brewers, chefs…mad as hatters, the lot of them – also, some of the most talented and generous folks on the planet. She is all in on this excellent adventure. Ask her about hiking the Inca Trail, about WildManDan Brews, or sorbet recipes -her eyes twinkle with the same excitement.
Provide the quiet little things that turn a visit into a memory.
Value each guest as an opportunity for growth, connection and lasting relationships.
All are welcome, discrimination and intolerance do not reside here.
