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.

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.
