Bluegrass Barbecue and Brew

Patrick Henry’s Red Hill is hosting the Bluegrass, Barbecue and Brew festival on Saturday, November 3, 2018, between 11:00 until 5:00.  Located at 1497 Red Hill Road in Brookneal, Virginia you don’t want to miss the flavors and sounds of Southern Virginia.  Combining the love of history with the love of music, barbecue, and Virginia craft beer the festival’s intention is to have festival attendees fall in love with Southern Virginia.

Bluegrass BBQ and Brew

 

Music was the entertainment for the 18th century.  Patrick Henry played the flute and fiddle, both of which can be seen in the museum at Red Hill.  The featured bands at this year’s festival are Breaking Glass, Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers and Nothin’ Fancy.

During the 18th century raising hogs was easy.  They would roam throughout the nearby woods so there was little to tend to.  Farmers would smoke and cure the meat.  You will have a choice of meats as your barbecue entree.  All of the barbecue vendors are from South Central Virginia.

You will also be able to sample and purchase local beer and cider.  While Patrick Henry was governor of Virginia he hired a Scotch brewer to make beer.  Henry never served anything stronger at the Governor’s dining table.

Enjoy the museum, historic buildings and the grounds that Patrick Henry loved.  Listen and dance to the music.  Visit the local art and craft vendors, to start your holiday shopping.  Fill yourself with delicious barbecue, beer or cider (but remember to do so responsibly.)

Tickets are either general admission or tasting tickets.  The general admission ticket, $15.00, allows you access to the bands, food and craft vendors, admission to all of the historic buildings and the museum and grounds.  Tasting tickets, $20.00, gives you all that the general admission ticket does along with your choice of a pub glass or a wine glass, for sampling.

Things to remember:

  • Festival hours are 11:00 until 5:00.  The music starts at 11:45 and the last pour is at 4:30.
  • Bring your own chairs or blanket for seating to watch the Bluegrass performances.
  • ID must be shown for all tasting ticket holders at the gate.
  • Docents will be available throughout the historic site, buildings and grounds.  Red Hill was Patrick Henry’s last home and is his burial place.  Take the time to enjoy the seven historic buildings, his grave site and the beautiful grounds overlooking the Staunton River Valley.
