Our Story

Painted Peak Brewing Co. is a dream born of both ambition and desperation. Our founding members are all natives of Southwest Virginia.  We feel we are very much in a fight for our survival as a community. Not unlike our ancestors many years ago, we find ourselves at a crossroads of whether to stand and fight or watch our community perish.  The natives of these beautiful mountains that we call home used the peaks of the ranges as a canvas.  They recorded their history, expressed their visions and marked their territories'. They left their story to future generations by painting on these peaks.  Painted Peak Brewing Co is our attempt to pay homage and draw strength from these early ancestors as we fight for our existence.

Our Mission


Our mission in forming Painted Peak Brewing Company is to make a tangible difference in our local communities.  We represent an ownership group that is focused on economic growth and new industry creation.  For more than two years we've been building the foundation of what has become Painted Peak Brewing Co.  This foundation includes research and development, site testing, building aquisition, licensing and compliance.  Our goal is  to bring hope and pride back into our communities.  We plan on accomplishing this goal through direct job creation, new industry and product development, increased community promotion awareness and tourism expansion.
    
     It is our belief that we can be a small but intricate part of a much bigger economic landscape.  Our plan to consistently send world class craft beer into the surrounding region will immediately begin to increase interest and traffic flow into our little piece of heaven.  It is our hope that Painted Peak Brewing Co is the first step in a bold new direction of revitalization and growth.
