In the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah National Park, three craft breweries— Basic City, Seven Arrows, and Stable Craft—grace Waynesboro and Augusta County. Each is a unique experience, showcasing the area’s history, hospitality, and horses. In common, they love all things local.

Basic City Beer Co. occupies the former brass foundry of Virginia Metalcrafters in what was once Basic City before it was annexed by Waynesboro. A trendy industrial space plus the effort to revitalize it equals something absolutely perfect for millennials and baby boomers alike.

Progressive Dining Downtown

The misty rain can’t dampen the spirits of the dozen giddy people poised to cross the street at Main and Arch. After all, we’re armed with umbrellas and irrepressible good spirits. We are a small group of strangers, preparing to set out on the first ever “Sip & Saunter,” a progressive dinner innovated by Parks and Rec to introduce residents to the unique restaurants in historic downtown Waynesboro. Our party is one of four that will, over the course of the evening, make its way on foot to five different restaurants, each with a sampling of distinctive cuisine.

Our docent, Kathy Johnson, leads us like a group of schoolchildren across the wet street. The vintage streetlights lining Main Street glow with a cheery brightness. A buzz of anticipation steals over us, and we chatter with each other in excited whispers. Already we can hear the music spilling from the first restaurant.
