The Roanoke Railhouse Brewery recognized and honored their “First Ten” customers last week. Steve Davidson, president of Roanoke Railhouse Brewery, Brewmaster Ryan Worthington, and Mayor David Bowers presented a plaque to Martin’s Downtown Bar and Grill.  Martin’s was the very first establishment to place the brewery’s Track 1 Amber lager on tap.

Each of the First Ten restaurants will be receiving their plaque over the coming days. They include Rockfish Food & Wine, Jimmy V’s, Montano’s, Annie Moore’s Pub, Brambleton Deli, The Pizza Pasta Pit, Mac & Bob’s, Fork in the Alley and the Hotel Roanoke.

  Roanoke Railhouse Brewery opened in 2009 in the former Dr. Pepper bottling plant. The company has produced nearly 25,000 gallons of brew this year in their 4,000 square foot facility. “The on-site, spring-fed well water is one of the things that differentiates Roanoke Railhouse Brewery beer from other craft-breweries,” said Director of Marketing Mathew Machtay.  The Valley’s only hometown brewery now distributes to over one hundred bars and restaurants throughout Virginia and North Carolina. The brew is also available in Kroger’s, Stop-In Food stores, and many specialty bottle shops.

The Brewery offers retail “Growler Hours” on Fridays 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Tours are on Saturdays at 1:15 p.m. and 2:15 p.m. To learn more visit www.roanokerailhouse.com.
