Next Meetup

Buzzard Rock | 4.0 Miles | Backroom Brewery
We are starting at 10am as the parking lot is likely to fill quickly (according to reviews online). Please meet at the parking lot around 9:30 so we can all hit the trail at the start time. I will post here in the discussion if the lot fills and then we will try to shuttle people back and forth to an acceptable parking spot if need be. Buzzard Rock is a neat hike near Front Royal, VA. There are 2 different ways to get up to this spot but we will be doing the 4-mile hike that starts from the trail head parking lot (picture of the meeting place will be in photos). The hike info is linked below and directions are available there as well: Total Distance: 4 miles (up and back) Elevation Gain: 675 ft After the hike, we will visit Backroom Brewery to refuel; they were Gold Medal Winners in the 2016 Virginia Craft Beer Competition!!! I've heard great things about them, but I've never had the chance to stop in. Link below: Check out Hike For Beer's website! Link below:

What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in hiking, cool pubs, and hanging out! We hike a good hour or two and then meander over to a local brew pub. All skill levels are welcome! Hike for Beer is a great combination of fantastic outdoor exercise and fun social interactions. The people in the group include different generations, genders, backgrounds and cultures and we all bond over hiking and beer, food, wine, chocolate etc.... This is a great group to be part of!

[Quick Note:
Hike at your own risk. This group is simply friends coming together to hike through the woods with each other and then go to brewery's and events afterwards. Please consider your own skill level when deciding which hikes you would like to participate in. If you attend a hike, you should always research the area on your own prior to hiking in order to familiarize yourself with the area and hike difficulty. If at any time during a hike you should be concerned with the trail, the duration of the hike, or your experience level, feel free to stop at any point and walk safely back after letting someone with you know.
Always hike with plenty of water!

And of course, this goes without saying, but must be said: Any time you ever consume alcohol, always drink responsibly, and NEVER drive drunk or impaired. Don't drink and drive, drive with someone who has not been drinking or take an Uber.]
