Wolf Hills Brewing Company

Wolf Hills Brewing Company WOLF HILLS BREWING CO is a craft brewery located in historic Abingdon, Virginia. The brewery takes its name from the original appellation that Daniel Boone gave to the wilderness that became Abingdon. Tradition holds that Boone and his hunting companion spent a sleepless night along a hill on the Great Road after their dogs encountered a pack of wolves, which had a den in a nearby cave. Drawing from this rich history, Wolf Hills Brewing CO melds together time honored brewing methods using only the highest quality ingredients with modern beer styles inspired by the wide array of fragrant hops from the Pacific-Northwest. Wolf Hills brews in small batches that are only distributed in the Virginia Highlands. The result is a level of fresh, savory beer that is unmatched in this region. Discover one of our many styles for yourself . . . you’ll be howling for more.

In order to protect themselves from attacks from native tribes, including those led by Dragging Canoe, Joseph Black and other settlers constructed a fort along the banks of Wolf Creek. Inspired by these hearty souls, this brown ale is fortified with the best of all brewing ingredients in one glass. A blend of American malts balances the incredible hop load. In a blended style of hop intense IPA and smooth, malty English brown ale, each glass is literally saturated with hop bitterness, flavor, and aroma. You will get a strong citrus experience from Cascade and Centennial hops that stand at attention to accept the boldness in the malt bill.
This summer beer is a dramatic variation of our Whitetop Wheat. We add pounds of fresh blackberries after fermentation which feed the yeast and encourage further fermentation. This ‘double ferment’ leaves the beer very dry and a bit sour like a good blackberry should. We appreciate the seasonal availability of fresh fruit and celebrate with a limited edition beer. This beer is cloudy from fruit pectin and the natural purple color remains for your enjoyment.
For many decades, Norfolk & Western trains “creeped” along the steep grade between Abingdon and North Carolina, allowing its passengers the time to take in the beautiful scenery. Today, the railbed has been converted into a trail along which bikers, runners and hikers enjoy views of open farmland, cool laurel forests and stately trestles that cross mountain streams. Resembling the orange and red hues of the Creeper Trail on a warm fall day, this amber ale is focused on sweet caramel malt flavors layered on a solid Munich and Victory malt backbone. These smooth malt flavors are intertwined like Virginia Creeper vines with a strong dose of bittering Magnum and citrusy aroma and flavor hops.
A frontiersman and early settler, Rev. Charles Cummings was dubbed the Fightin’ Parson due in equal measure to his experience battling local native tribes as well as his affinity for resting his rifle on the pulpit during sermons. Like its namesake, Fightin’ Parson’s Pale Ale is an American original. It offers a strong malt background in order to balance intense and complex hop additions. After generous hopping during brewing, we dry hop after fermentation with Simcoe and Amarillo to provide a grapefruit, citrus aroma and flavor.
Warm up this winter season with this silky smooth, chocolate latte of an English style stout brewed especially for House on Main. Fresh oats give the beer a unique, velvety mouthfeel and residual sweetness. English Maris Otter base malt is enhanced by a hint of Victory malt for a biscuit, breakfast flavor, combined with dark roasted barley and chocolate malts that give this beer its intense color and chocolaty, coffee-like bitterness. Along with these layered winter flavors, there is a small hint of spring from the Kent Goldings hops in a bittering, earthy, grassy addition.
Like the birthplace of Wolf Hills’s beer, this stout is steeped in genteel, Southern tradition while maintaining a modern flair. The integration of four different barley malts creates a mosaic of beer flavor. Accentuated by a bit of chocolate malt you will experience biscuit, bread, and caramel flavors, an intense but enjoyable bitterness from dark malts and a heavy hand of American Magnum and Centennial hops.
In 1777, some former lands of Dr. Thomas Walker were laid out into lots along Main and Water streets. On Main Street, numerous hotels and small lodges were established to house the itinerant men who traveled along the Great Road. Hidden down the hill in between Main and Water was a small sidestreet named Troopers Alley. Stepping out the back doors from those Main Street hotels into the Alley, men could find dens of “evil fame,” gambling, and strong ale. Like those establishments, the intense hop bill of this American-style IPA will tempt you with citrus aroma and bitterness. A discrete malt bill of 2-row Pale Malt forms the backbone and a blend of Crystal/Caramel 40 is added for slight sweetness and color to draw you in to the varied hop experience. Simcoe and Columbus hops added throughout the boil provide an alluring bitterness. An enticing blend of Columbus, Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascade, and Centennial balances the bitterness with a fragrant aroma and pleasing finish.
Whitetop Mountain was long considered the highest peak in Virginia as its snowy bald can be observed from all around and the panoramic views from its summit are unrivalled. Like a clear summer day on her cap, this wheat is light and crisp. The smooth wheat malt shines through with only a hint of Willamette and Centennial hops. The cloudiness in this beer comes from the wheat malt and the natural yeast character.
The British developed the India Pale Ale with plenty of bitter English hops in order for the beer to survive the long sea passage to India. Not to be outdone, American craft brewers have taken this concept a step further. This double IPA is a high-alcohol, hop delivery mechanism distributed only while at its peak. Although well-balanced, the significant hop flavor and essences (over 100 IBU) lurking in this unassuming pale ale will spring on your taste buds and nose.
