While DCs cherry blossoms may be past peak, ours are just starting to come in. Each year, this is the first of ours to pop...the kwanzans (the bright pink ones) will be coming in about three weeks from now. We care deeply about the beauty of our beer and the beauty of our customers’ surroundings.

As renovation continues on the barns, we are relishing the slow return of green as spring takes hold.
On 30 acres of rolling Virginia countryside, the property includes two original, timber-frame constructed barns dating from the 1870’s and 1920’s, a circa 1832 Cottage B&B, a poolside reception area, and an area for tented events next to the brewery that overlooks the cropland.
We welcome the opportunity to help you bring to life your vision for a special celebration.

We’re putting an all glass “store front” across this view so that we have an unobstructed view of the 1870s bank barn taproom and our customers have an unobstructed view of our brewhouse. Out the other side of the brewhouse through a glass garage door is our wheat field. From the field, through the brewhouse, to the customer with transparency.

Ooooooo they so pretty!
Had some more US stainless roll onto the farm yesterday. These beauties were designed and made by @americankeg out of Pennsylvania. Who wants one?! @ Wheatland Spring Farm + Brewery

03/12/2019

Yesterday was a neat day. Yes, our brewhouse landed, but the best part was seeing team Wheatland Spring coming together, working seamlessly. There were moments when we almost had tears in our eyes. When choosing a brewhouse we went through a year of research and months of painstaking comparison and soul searching. We landed almost at the last minute on a small US manufacturer out of Portland, OR Portland Kettle Works
The process of selecting our team was no different. We could not imagine doing this with anyone else. Sincere thanks crew, friends, for choosing Wheatland Spring.

Where the grass meets the wheat. Of our 30 acres, about 2/3s is under crop. There is a special spot in the northeastern corner of our wheat field which provides sweeping views of the Short Hill Mountain (part of the Blue Ridge Mountains). Paired with a crisp Wheatland Spring beer 🌾 🍺, for those looking to be close to nature, we aren’t sure what would compare. Photo cred: @thelyonswood

We’re taking great pains to adapt the barns for today’s agricultural use in the same vernacular as the original builders. Our adaptation approach: if the original craftsmen showed up today, they would do things just as we are.

Our barns date from the 1870s and 1920s. Guests will enjoy intimate seating spaces tucked away in these historic structures. We hope to bring customers closer to agriculture, closer to our farming heritage, and closer to the truth that traditional farming can and is thriving today. We’ve entrusted these historic structures in a local fifth generation stone mason. When we came to know @cochransstonemasonry we knew we would do this project with no one else and we are so glad that Allen in return chose our barns and project.

We decided early on that we would partner with businesses and invest in products made in our local community, region, and the USA as much as possible. It is core to what we are doing. When choosing brewing equipment, we landed on a small company out of Portland, Oregon which builds brewhouses from US steel and US components. John and Bonnie had the opportunity to meet with the master welder Oz, pictured here, in Portland who oversaw our brewhouse work. To be able to shake hands and get to know the people with whom we are doing business is important to us.

In many ways, the heart of our operation lives here, in the farm Spring House - hence the name Wheatland Spring. Having a natural spring water source on the property is an inspiration for our approach to beer. We are sourcing ingredients from our farm and neighboring small farms as much as possible. When asked what type of beer we are brewing, our answer is Land Beer. While the name is a nod to German Landbier (translated Country Beer) our intent is something more. We are brewing beer of and for our community - Wheatland, Virginia.

Easily accessible while feeling secluded, Wheatland Spring is tucked away in 30 acres of rolling Virginia farmland. The property dates from circa 1832, with the land’s natural spring providing water and its name.
