Painted Peak Brewery in Tazewell Virginia

Brewers are, almost across the board, a passionate group of people. But the guys at Painted Peak Brewery in Tazewell Virginia are so dedicated to their community, it is at the very core of their ethos.

The homepage reads: "Painted Peak Brewing Co. is a dream born of both ambition and desperation. Our founding members are all natives of Southwest Virginia.  We feel we are very much in a fight for our survival as a community. Not unlike our ancestors many years ago, we find ourselves at a crossroads of whether to stand and fight or watch our community perish.  The natives of these beautiful mountains that we call home used the peaks of the ranges as a canvas.  They recorded their history, expressed their visions and marked their territories'. They left their story to future generations by painting on these peaks.  Painted Peak Brewing Co is our attempt to pay homage and draw strength from these early ancestors as we fight for our existence."

The journey to turn an old car dealership at the heart of their downtown into a bustling hub for their community has been a few years in the making and a thrill to watch! We're so proud of this crew and look forward to many trips back to beautiful Tazewell to toast their continued success!
