The only brewery we know of that shares space with a plant nursery, Rockfish Brewing Company introduced a tight line of craft beers in 2019 and quickly developed a village of loyalists who can be seen sipping beneath ponytails and trucker caps at picnic tables along Preston Avenue. Owner Peter McMindes named his brewery after a drawing by his son, and he also doesn’t think it’s a big deal that there’s a plant store next door. Rockfish is the only nano brewery in Charlottesville. Small batch selection means the beer is very fresh and rotates frequently with attention to detail and ingredients. Hence the gals in pony tails and guys in trucker caps and plants nearby. This place is cool.
