The Roanoke Region’s beer scene has exploded. The success of regional breweries and their concentration in the area has given rise to a micro-economy centered on craft beer. Roanoke features commercial and self-guided beer tours, and lots of beer and spirits festivals, including the largest beer festival in the state – Microfestivus.  

And there’s always fun on tap with live music, food trucks, and even things for the kids to do at many of the region’s craft breweries. Many also host cornhole tournaments, trivia nights, and a variety of festivals.

Franklin County is the Moonshine Capital of the World and there are also a number distilleries in the region.
