Virginia Breweries Rock (and Roll) with Live Music This Spring and Summer

While most traditional live music venues may still be closed and larger events are just starting to come back online, Virginia breweries are getting into the normal-ish swing of things by hosting live music (with COVID safety measures) this spring and summer.

Here are just a few of the breweries around the state serving up a little guitar and drums with their pints and plates.*

2 Silos Brewing Co.
Farm Brew Live at Innovation Park, a destination brewery campus home to 2 Silos Brewing Co., host bands and musicians from around the mid-Atlantic region year-round. During the warmer months, catch local and regional acts on the Yard soundstage, Wednesday through Sunday.
FarmBrewLive.com

B Chord Brewing Company
B Chord Brewing Company in Round Hill announced the reopening of its outdoor lawns in the Blue Ridge Mountains featuring a performance by Keller Williams & The Keels April 2 and Keller Loopless and the Grateful Gospel (feat. John Kadlecik) April 3. More shows to come.
BChordBrewing.com

Big Lick Brewing Company
Downtown Roanoke’s popular Big Lick Brewing kicked off live music in 2021 with a performance by Josuah Eadie & The Common Wealth and it’s a fairly safe bet there will be plenty of sounds to go with the sights (that mural for starters) and suds this season.
BigLickBrewingCo.com 

Big Ugly Brewing
Spend your weekend with music from artists like Doc Perkins, Jacob Vanko and Rob Synder at Big Ugly Brewing. The brewery will have live music every Friday and Saturday night, and possibly Thursdays and Sundays as COVID restrictions ease. Children of all ages, along with pets, are welcome on the outdoor patio.
BigUglyBrewing.com

Bold Mariner Brewing Company
Fridays at Bold Mariner Brewing are “Frogman Fridays.” Hear live music every Friday starting at 6 p.m. while sipping a $5 pint of the brewery’s Frogman lager.
BoldMariner.com 

Dirt Farm Brewing
Bluemont’s Dirt Farm Brewing starts its live music lineup in April, with shows every Friday from 5:30–8:30 p.m. Local acts Chris Bowen and The Crooked Angels will perform on the patio, overlooking Loudon Valley, every first and third Friday, respectively.
DirtFarmBrewing.com

Devil’s Backbone Brewing Company
Devil’s Backbone recently announced their spring concert series featuring ticketed shows at the large outdoor venue at their Basecamp in Nelson County, complete lineup TBA. A variety of new social distancing measures including seating pods will be in place.
DBBrewingCompany.com 

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery
Hear the acoustic musical stylings from local groups this spring at both of Hardywood’s locations in Richmond. The brewery plans to host bigger bands this summer, so keep an eye out for all the scheduled performers.
Hardywood.com 

O’Connor Brewing Co.
If it’s Saturday, there’s good chance there’s live music on tap at the home of El Guapo Agave IPA in Norfolk. Food trucks too. Lena Klett, Troy Breslow and Glasgow Kiss were just a few artists listed on their roster this spring.
OConnorBrewing.com 

Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery
Lickinghole Creek debuted its outdoor, socially distanced concert series in March. Goochland County local performers, along with regional and national touring acts, will visit the brewery farm until August.
LickingHoleCreek.com

Loudon Brewing Co.
Loudoun Brewing Co. welcomes live music every Friday night on the Band Wagon, an old farm hay wagon outdoors. The brewery’s musical lineup begins April 9 at 6 p.m. with Clark Peklo, then Eric Campbell, Doin’ Time and Marco DeSandro scheduled to round out the rest of the month.

Stable Craft Brewing
Stable Craft Brewing at Hermitage Hill will showcase live music on their outdoor stage on certain days. Check their online schedule for performances during their Friday Night Love promotion, Saturday evening headliners and Sunday afternoon shows.
StableCraftBrewing.com

The Vanguard
The Vanguard’s historic Hampton Armory location is a premiere entertainment venue for local and national musicians. Every Friday and Saturday, enjoy indoor acoustic sets from acts like Jacob Vanko, Fixity, Doyle & Dunn and more.

Twisted Track Brewpub
Live music takes the stage on Platform #1 every Saturday night, from 4–7 p.m., at Twisted Track Brewpub. Catch additional performances every other Friday, from 5–8 p.m. at the Roanoke brewpub. TwistedTrackBrewpub.com

Virginia Beer Co.
This Williamsburg spot is known for hosting live music in their 2,000 sq. ft. beer garden almost as much as for their craft brews, and they’re teasing a triumphant (yet safe) return to the rock-n-roll as restrictions ease.
VirginiaBeerCo.com

Water’s End Brewery
Water’s End is scheduled to have live music at the Lake Ridge Taproom every Saturday night, from 6–9 p.m. Northern Virginia favorites Joe Downer, Andrew Lane and Matty D & Kara are just some of the rotating acts that will perform, with shows running through Sept. 18.

*Be sure to check each brewery’s website or social media for the most up-to-date band lineups and information regarding COVID-related measures or schedule changes.
