65 IBUs. 16.9 degrees plato. Brewed independently since 2007. Sit on the patio. Soak up the sunshine - look at the hops vines twirling up their strings and then keep looking up, up to Afton Mountain and the ridges that draw a craggy blue line on the horizon. And while you're drinking it all in, raise a glass of flavorful beer and toast your good fortune for being in a special place - such is the feeling Blue Mountain creates. While some breweries strive to offer a taste of place, Blue Mountain makes you feel like you're in a post card someone will mail to a friend, saying, wish you were here. - From Charlottesville Beer, Brewing in Jefferson's shadow, by Lee Graves, The History Press 2017.
