We made a quick stop to see a friend and have lunch in Staunton, Virginia. Not really expecting to find a whole lot of craft beer in this small town in the mountains of VA, we were pleasantly surprised to find Shenandoah Pizza at 19 East Beverley Street in the heart of downtown. Not only do they have over 20 fabulous gourmet pizzas (we had a combo with 1/2 Virginia Vineyard a white pizza made with locally grown grapes and the Swoope with artichoke hearts and alfredo sauce), they also have a list of 200 beers! We then found out that they have a new shop around the corner at 9 North New Street called Shenandoah Hops which sells local crafts and products as well as working on a starting a great craft beer selection. We picked up a bomber from Bear Republic as well as a six pack of our Terrapin Moo-Hoo! We chatted with co-owner Cheryl Huggins and discussed their attempts to get world class beer into Staunton. We highly recommend both places as a destination whenever you're near Staunton, VA which is at the crossroads of I-64 and I-81.
