Overview
More
A farm brewery about one mile outside of town in Blacksburg, VA. The taproom is located within a barn, with sheltered and open-air seating. The brewery space is shared with several small businesses under one rood, including Glade Road Growing Farm and Tabula Rasa Farm Kitchen. We are a family-friendly and pet-friendly environment! Live music is hosted every weekend. Brewery serves tastings, pints on site and growler fills to-go. Tabula Rasa serves farm-to-table fare whenever the brewery is open with a seasonal, chalkboard menu. Food is available by cash only; Rising Silo Brewery accepts cash or credit.

Great outdoor setting to enjoy the company of friends! The chairs are far from comfortable and the large tables are meant for a big crowd therefore if you are looking for a table for two you will have to sit with strangers. Food choices are...More

We have been here several times and the beer is always good. They have house made ginger beer, kombucha, and soda too. They have good pizzas made in in a wood-fired oven with local ingredients. There is plenty of seating inside and out with logs...More

Limited schedule, but nice spot to slow down for a bit. Enjoy fresh beer, live music, and the gazpacho is amazing!!! Open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday with a seasonal farmers market.

The brewery doesn't have a sign so we all missed the entrance. It is an absolutely beautiful location. The beer was good.

If you enjoy local craft beers, you found the hidden gem of Blacksburg. Rising Silo offers some beers with lots of flavor. If you enjoy tasteless domestic beer, this is not the place for you.

Rising Silo is a great place to meet up with friends and family for a low key afternoon drink in an outdoor/patio setting. It's a working farm and brewery but that only adds to the ambiance. Overall the beer is good and the views are...More
