One of America’s most beloved hobbies, craft brewing, has produced over 8,000 breweries nationwide. Virginia itself has over 200, and our Fredericksburg region is home to nine local breweries that have been serving our community for years. Every August we celebrate Virginia Craft Beer Month, and this year we’re highlighting our Fredericksburg Area Beer Trail, a simple, fun, and safe way to support local brewers during COVID-19. Enjoy your craft brews indoors with socially distanced seating, basque in the Virginia sun and sip a cool drink outdoors and on the patio, or order for pick-up! Our breweries not only provide delicious and unique brews, but they also entertain game nights, live music, open mic nights, food trucks, and more! Always check up on the FAB Trail Facebook page to keep up to date with our breweries’ local events.

**Quick note: Please view our Know Before You Go: What’s Open in the Fredericksburg Region to see the latest COVID-19 updates. All individuals are urged to continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines and use face coverings when in public. If you feel sick or are showing any symptoms of being sick, stay home. All of our breweries are operating under Virginia’s Phase 3 Guidelines by ensuring 6 feet social distancing, sanitizing every 60 minutes, and wearing masks in order to operate safely and effectively.

Fredericksburg Area Beer Trail

Our FAB Trail passport is available to print from FABTrail.com and physical copies are available to pick up at the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania Visitor Center, as well as the participating breweries. Bring your passport with you as your drink along the trail, and ask for it to be stamped after each brewery. Once you’ve collected at least 5 stamps (or all 9), bring it to the Fredericksburg or Spotsylvania Visitor Center to receive a prize. You may also submit your passport by emailing a photo of it to [email protected], messaging it to the FAB Trail Facebook page, or uploading it to at the end of your Prize Redemption Form.
