Star City Brewers Guild

The Star City Brewers Guild ("SCBG" or "the Guild") is the area's only homebrewers' club officially recognized by the AHA (American Homebrewers Association). The SCBG serves the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas and includes members from as far away as Lynchburg, Martinsville, and Blacksburg, Virginia.  At the end of 2014, the Guild consisted of 80 paid members, including single memberships and couples.  The SCBG meets monthly, but is much more than monthly meetings.  The Guild as a group, and as individual members, has a recognizable presence in the Roanoke Valley as knowledgeable advocates for quality brewing and good beer, both homebrewed and craft-brewed.

Parkway Brewing Company

The story of Parkway Brewing Company is a love story, a story that embodies the American Dream, a story of do-it-yourself determination, a story that continues on an exciting journey- much like the scenic highway for which Parkway Brewing is named. Two couples with a dream: a Master Brewer with a scientist’s brain and an artist’s palate, a visionary instigator with a dogged determination and their two creative and clever wives saw craft beer culture exploding across the nation and wanted to bring it home to the mountains of SW Virginia. Since opening in 2013 on Kessler Mill Road in tiny Salem, Virginia, Parkway Brewing Company has not only created some of the state’s tastiest brews, but they have created a place that has brought together a community of like-minded, free-spirited beer lovers with a penchant for the great outdoors.
