Willow Spring Brewery

The first brewery in Orange VA is now pouring its own in-house hand-crafted beers! Inspired by Willow Spring’s crystal clear water, bubbling from a hidden spring in Orange County which has provided refreshment to man and wildlife alike for hundreds of years, our beers are all brewed using local water sources nature has graciously provided to us.
Owned by and located in the back room of The Light Well restaurant,    Willow Spring Brewery is now in operation.  Brewer Dave Ganoe, also the chef of the Light Well, is currently offering 4 original recipes.

The Fat Nancy

The flagship brew, an American Style pale ale, commemorates an 1888 train wreck which occurred just west of Orange. A wooden trestle collapsed and several passengers were lost. “Nancy” was the trestle watcher and sadly not at home the day of the crash.

The Mad Jimmy

Named after Orange County’s favorite son, President James Madison.  Brew Master Ganoe carefully crafts every batch of this double IPA. Hoppy up-front flavors, with an extremely smooth finish, is the trademark of this lovely “bitter”. Great with food or as a way to unwind at the end of a long day! 

Chicken Mountain                 Stout

The newest addition to our 12 tap system, a unique dark beer made with locally harvested chicory. A lovely, smooth, 5% ABV stout with a wonderful full-bodied flavor is reminiscent of the finest European offerings. A Happy Hour favorite! 

Rapid Ann Rye

A red ale named after our lovely Rapidan River, one of the premier headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay and the drinking water source of the surrounding counties. Water sourced from the Rapidan sets this ale apart from all other local brews. The unusual use of rye as the base grain makes this very drinkable red ale unique.

Our place, Orange, VA!
