Thawfest 2018 (Hosted By Painted Peak Brewing Co)

On Main Street in Tazewell Virginia, Painted Peak Brewing Company hosted their first “Thawfest” Saturday, April 21st. This festival was a great opportunity to celebrate winter ending with some great beer, food, and music.

A few members of Blue Ridge Report including myself, attended the first annual “Thawfest” which is a music/beer festival that is located in Tazewell Virginia, right in front of Painted Peak Brewing Co. Thanks to the kindness of Painted Peak’s Owner/CEO Dave Blankenship we were able to capture our interviews with some of the bands inside of the “Tap House” where the incredible tasting Painted Peak beer is crafted.

Below you can find our Video Interviews with two of the bands that played at this years Thawfest “Black Garlic” and “The Kind Thieves”. Continue reading “Thawfest 2018 (Hosted By Painted Peak Brewing Co)”

Exploring The Great Outdoors Of Southwest Virginia In Early Spring: 15 Inches of Snow Edition

Hello gang. As many of you know, on Friday, March 23rd, Mother Nature went berserk and we in the Blue Ridge region got to experience all of Winter in a single 24 hour span. What a crock of $#!* that was…No electricity for days, trapped at your house, food going bad, no fan to sleep by…well, that was my story at least…some of you lucky @sses had generators, but it was still an ordeal, the likes of which many of us had not experienced in quite some time.

We choked down our food and high tailed it home…and that’s where we stayed for the rest of the weekend. Yay. Happy Birthday Ma… Continue reading “Exploring The Great Outdoors Of Southwest Virginia In Early Spring: 15 Inches of Snow Edition”
