Great outdoor setting to enjoy the company of friends! The chairs are far from comfortable and the large tables are meant for a big crowd therefore if you are looking for a table for two you will have to sit with strangers. Food choices are...More

Limited schedule, but nice spot to slow down for a bit. Enjoy fresh beer, live music, and the gazpacho is amazing!!! Open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday with a seasonal farmers market.

If you enjoy local craft beers, you found the hidden gem of Blacksburg. Rising Silo offers some beers with lots of flavor. If you enjoy tasteless domestic beer, this is not the place for you.
