Tourism Tuesday: Backroom Brewery
9 July 2019
We were in the studio today for Tourism Tuesday – Front Royal/Warren County edition – with Felicia Hart, Director of Community Development & Tourism for the Town of Front Royal and her guest, Billie Clifton, owner of Backroom Brewery.
Our conversation included some history of how and why Billie started Backroom Brewery in 2012 and a quick lesson about hops. Billie told us about the new Amish pole barn recently constructed on her property that will serve as their new events center. The space is substantially larger than her current pub and will allow for any number of private events including weddings and corporate events.
They will be hosting a Grand Opening celebration August 3, 2019 from 11am – 9pm with a ribbon cutting, live music, food trucks and more. They will also unveil a new beer at the event. Get more information on their Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2400147043366122/
We also talked about the recent award given to their Oatmeal Stout at the 2019 Virginia Craft Beer Cup. Several of their beers have won gold, silver and bronze medals since 2016.
