About Bald Top 

"In addition to each other, owners Julie and Dave love Virginia history, the rolling hills of the piedmont and its diverse nature, and entertaining with great wine and beer. Since moving to Woodbourne Estate, Julie and Dave have hosted friends and family from all over the world, and with each visit, their guests would rave about the unique beauty of the historic farm and surrounding pasture.  After considering several agritourism options for the farm, an idea started to arise.  With an intense love of beer and homebrewing, Dave began to work on ideas: exploring everything from hops plant varieties to recipes with the farm’s rich “garden goodies.”  As the months passed, the idea of opening Virginia’s First Historic Farm Brewery took shape. Dave and Julie relied on their science and engineering backgrounds to construct Central Virginia’s largest private hops yard, where they are continuing to test and monitor the viability of several hops varieties, in concert with Virginia State University. The hillside Tap Barn seemed the perfect place to drink the magical elixir of Bald Top: overlooking the rolling hills and hops yard with its 25 foot telephone poles towering skyward – and now lovingly referred to as “Hop Henge.”

Perhaps most importantly, they are a family business.”
